Michael Jackson

Nose
More assertively smoky.
Palate
Smoother, richer, sweeter.
Finish
Spicier. More peppery. Seaweed more iron-like.
Comment
Has mellowed with the extra years, but, as is sometimes the case with island malts, it seemed happier with the vigour of youth.

Martine Nouet

Nose
Intense, smooth. Shellfish, wet seaweed. Sea aromas soon give way to biscuity notes. Vanilla, honey, marzipan. Toasted almonds.
Palate
Round, velvety. Sweet mouthfeel like creamy fudge. Coconut milk. The smokiness drifts away very quickly. Becomes syrupy with water.
Finish
Long; drier, spicier than the 17 Years Old.
Comment
Same sweetness as the 17, but coastal aromas fade quickly. Distinct woodiness.
