Michael Jackson

Nose
Deceptive. Seems restrained, but at close quarters is quite powerful. Nutty, with a splash of lemony sourness.
Palate
Big, firm. Hard toffee. Burnt, peat-smoke notes.
Finish
Spicy. Ginger snaps. Shortbread. Long, lingering.
Comment
Confident. Straightforward. A first-class whisky. Well-rounded. No-nonsense.

Dave Broom

Nose
Big, rich, appetising nose: Dundee cake, oak, sherry, ripe fruits, fern/bracken and the greenish edge you seem to get with many 12 Years Olds.
Palate
Robust, deep and fruity with lovely rich oaky notes.
Finish
A little short.
Comment
A powerful bugger and a great introduction to the distillery style, but you feel you'd get much more in a couple of years.
