Michael Jackson

Nose
Perfumy. Rosewater. Pruney.
Palate
Starts sweet. Rather thin. Soft, gentle. Falling apart somewhat.
Finish
Slight woody astringency.
Comment
The russet colour promised something more luxurious, but this whisky is not as rich as it was.

Dave Broom

Nose
Thick, resinous and richly scented with a drift of smoke overlaid by a beautiful perfume. Water pulls out a silky soft note with grilled nut, fig jam and with time honey. Layered and complex.
Palate
Sweet start. Light, tea-like tannins, hard toffee, chestnut, ginger spiciness. Silky feel.
Finish
Embers, oak, Dundee cake. Very long. Becomes a little tight with time.
Comment
A fantastic dram. Overlook this at your peril.
