Michael Jackson

Nose
Fresh leather. Attractive blend of sherry and peat.
Palate
Creamier. Raisiny. At this stage the sherry seems to find common cause with sweet, juicy oak. The peat emerges when water is added.
Finish
Teasing. Smoky, smooth.
Comment
A very sophisticated bottling. Perfect after a fine dinner.

Jim Murray

Nose
Surprisingly etheric for a malt this age with a peculiar plasticene like waxiness. A light brushing of smoke balances the vanilla.
Palate
Big, fat start with an oily peatiness undulating in intensity as a leathery, beeswax like maltiness offers a wonderfully restrained sweetness.
Finish
Lengthy, a build up of vanilla tapers the dryness.
Comment
A lovely malt more delicious for its effect than its complexity.
