Michael Jackson

Nose
Nice touch of sherry to round its big maltiness – and a subtle hint of peat.
Palate
Luscious, clean, maltiness and barley-sugar sweetness. Moving to drier maltiness and, again, gentle peating.
Finish
Firm, smooth. Orange zest. Cinnamon. Late, light ginger.
Comment
Anyone not quite understanding the term "malt" should try this whisky. All will then be clear.

Jim Murray

Nose
Seriously unimpressive: sub-standard sherry notes topped only by a hint of smoke. Pretty grim.
Palate
Silky but otherwise bland. Very little emerges beyond the flavourless sherry except a brief, malty, smoky peat.
Finish
Caramel and vanilla. Otherwise dead.
Comment
Zzzzzzzzzzz.
