Michael Jackson

Fragrant. Dried apricots. Some syrupy notes. Butter. Treacle toffee. Slight burnt grass, peat.
Starts dry. Toasted almonds. Very nutty. Creamy sweetness in middle. Clean toffee. Lemon.
Restrained spiciness. Ginger. White pepper.
Port wood can add toffeeish and spicy flavours, rounding out a whisky without adding an obvious wine flavour. That is what happens here.

Dave Broom

Sweet and silky. Hint of honey, nut and bracken along with red fruits, raisin and plum pudding. Light smoke.
A sweet start. Very fruity/winey, redcurrant jelly.
Sweet. Wine gums.
Doesn't like water. Is it Grouse – or something new?
