Michael Jackson

Nose
Very aromatic, minty, spicy, heather fragrance.
Palate
Silky. Gently sweetish start. Creamy. Nutty.
Finish
Toasty dryness. Slight juicy grassiness. Late, light, fragrant distinct, peat smokiness and hint of the sea (very late, on the front of the tongue)
Comment
The Grouse at its most graceful.

Jim Murray

Nose
A clean, malty aroma brimming with a salad bowl of banana, orange, grape and figs.
Palate
Teasing yet lush malt in cloud of smoke.
Finish
Soft oak, vanilla intermingle.
Comment
Vatted malts are notoriously disappointing. At last, one to take your breath away.
