Michael Jackson

Nose
Lightly nutty. Lightly winey. Some appetising sweetness.
Palate
Light. Very winey. Falls away in the middle.
Finish
Very sweet. Treacle toffee. Nice and lingering.
Comment
Lacking in dimension for a single barrel. Saved by the finish.

Jim Murray

Nose
Small grains to the fore with a lovely malt-rye interplay. Fittingly delicate and floral.
Palate
Much denser on the palate, in fact surprisingly heavy. Roasty, burnt raisins a hint of coffee and burnt fudge. Unbelievably chewy.
Finish
More of the same, though the fade out is slow and tantalising.
Comment
Unquestionably the best bottles sample from this distillery I've tasted yet.
