Michael Jackson

Nose
Assertive, rounded, appetising, smokiness. Some maltiness, reminiscent of Darjeeling tea.
Palate
Silky-smooth treacle toffee.
Finish
Chewy. Rooty. Anis. Liquorice.
Comment
I have always had a quiet fancy for this malt. It has a lot character: demonstrated here in the way it stands up to such heavy sherry.

Dave Broom

Nose
Dates, treacle, leather, fruit cake, smoke and a perfumed note.
Palate
That perfumed character runs against the figgy, rich spirit unbalancing the whisky.
Finish
Smoky. Dry and slightly tannic.
Comment
Robust but the cask is in charge.
