Michael Jackson

Nose
Fresh, scented, fruity, like an unpeeled dessert grape. Perhaps a suggestion of banana.
Palate
Water melon, banana, white chocolate. Lightly creamy. Shortbread.
Finish
Grape skins and apple cores, hay and cereal grains. Lightly dry and very crisp.
Comment
Pale and soft, but textured.

Jim Murray

Nose
Dry and less overtly malty than the usual Glen Moray; comes to life only when well warmed. Then slightly buttery and marshmallow-sweet.
Palate
Tangy fruit, unquestionably grapey, but fails to marry with the intense malt which offers some much needed sweetness.
Finish
Dry, vanilla, lacking depth, save some toasty cocoa notes. Short.
Comment
Hmmm. Not quite as well structured as I might have wished. I prefer the old Glen Moray to this, which has its moments, but tends to be a little awkward.
