Michael Jackson

Nose
Surprisingly powerful. Lovely clean, appetising aromas. Freshly peeled oranges. Dried apricots.
Palate
Thick-cut marmalade on well-buttered toast. Liquorice. Lots of flavour development in the glass.
Finish
A hint of burnt toast. A whiff of smoke, from the direction of Orkney.
Comment
Like the regular Grouse, it tastes maltier and bigger than it really is. An excellent justification of cask strength.

Dave Broom

Nose
Generous with soft grain, vanilla, fruit, orange, treacle scones and smoke. Alcoholic.
Palate
Good weight but there's a hard note running all the way through. Smooth, sweet and fruity to start, then tightens.
Finish
Punchy.
Comment
The strength gives it greater weight than the standard bottling and a bottle will last three times as long!
