Michael Jackson

Nose
Oaky.
Palate
Medium to full. Very firm. Oaky start, with nutty maltiness and raisiny sweetness fighting through. Tightly locked flavours open with a dash of water.
Finish
Peat. Log fires. Oak.
Comment
Some of the voluptuousness has sagged with age.

Jim Murray

Nose
Beautifully defined oak; almost chestnut sweet with clean sherry, softly peated and bourbony.
Palate
Oak again, teasingly spicy with sweetness and intense malt. Hint of liquorice .
Finish
Long, chewy, smoky and initially sweet with the liquorice continuing, dries slowly to an oaky encore.
Comment
An almost immaculate portrayal of an old-fashioned, high quality malt. Quite outstanding for its age.
