Michael Jackson

Nose
Instant hit of the breezy peat-smoke that I remember in Speyside malts. Did Glen Moray have this smokiness a dozen years ago?
Palate
The characteristic cereal-grain character is surprisingly assertive, almost husky, but it soon calms to biscuity shortbread and buttery notes.
Finish
Vegetal, rooty. Liquorice.
Comment
A robust rendition. One for mountaineers?

Dave Broom

Nose
Vibrant/zesty. Vanilla, citrus. Spices: cinnamon powder. With water, hot cross buns and marzipan.
Palate
Fairly firm structure but fizzing with life. Thick cream, soft fruits and a light malty cereal note. Sweet.
Finish
Oak and orange Spangles.
Comment
Fascinating-single malt aged in new US oak-resulting in a half-way house between bourbon and malt. A cracking drink.
