Michael Jackson

Nose
Very aromatic, with a hint of cloves and apples. Tannin.
Palate
Toffee, apples and oak.
Finish
Long, with hints of peat, grass and leaves. Resiny, peppery.
Comment
Firmer and more assertive.

Jim Murray

Nose
Big and massively complex. Healthy honey glow weaves in and out of the trademark Glen Moray malt intensity, weighted by a dash of peat. The wineyness is restricted to a fruit cocktail of apple and sultana.
Palate
Sublime mouthfeel: slightly oily and wonderfully lush. Sweet malt and lighter grapey notes go hand-in-hand at the start, though the middle sees the malt intensify.
Finish
Lovely coffee and vanilla mix with a drying oakiness fitting a 16 Years Old. Dries impressively.
Comment
Wow. This is not how Glen Moray used to be. A dram just brimming with complexity and threatening to explode.
