Michael Jackson

Nose
Autumn leaves. Grass. Peat smoke.
Palate
Picnic flapjack, slightly burnt at the edges. Nutty. Gingery. Lively flavours.
Finish
Honey. Cream. Some peat.
Comment
I love the peaty, burnt notes notes in this robustly malty whisky.

Jim Murray

Nose
Light, despite a charming smokiness. Incredibly clean. A soft citric background reveals young age.
Palate
Intensely malty, fresh with increasing sweetness as the kippery peatiness gathers.
Finish
Echoing smoke and a delicious build up of cocoa notes. Long. Toasty. Highly satisfying with almost perfect bittersweet balance.
Comment
Easily one of the best 8 Years Old on the market: very, very impressive and enjoyable.
