Michael Jackson

Nose
Evocative. Sweetshops. Mint. Liquorice.
Palate
Sherryish. Smooth Malty. Nutty. Creamy. Very gentle oily smokiness.
Finish
Firm. Toasty balancing dryness. Hint of salty coastal whisky. Again, all very restrained.
Comment
The Grouse enthusiast who tastes this vatted version will be seduced by it. The aromas and flavours suggest malts from the company's own distilleries – and perhaps a little more Highland Park than last year?

Dave Broom

Nose
Attractive, fragrant with honeyed depth: notes of heather, gorse/coconut, madeira cake, honey, cinnamon and some grassy and smoky touches.
Palate
Slightly dry start then it softens mid-palate where all that honeyed, cakey, ripe fruitiness reappears. Good mouthfeel and balance.
Finish
Ripe silky and sweet.
Comment
Discreetly complex but go easy on the water. It's easily drowned.
