Michael Jackson

Nose
Light, fresh, almond-blossom. Hard butterscotch. Nutty. A hint of grassy peatiness.
Palate
Slowly reveals white chocolate flavours. Fondant-like, peppermint. Then spicy, herbal notes.
Finish
Restrained. Lightly gingery. Warming.
Comment
A playful whisky for one of such maturity. Starting very sweetly, but reluctant to reveal its secrets. Give it time to reveal its complexity.

Dave Broom

Nose
Intense, perfumed almost sharp nose with lemon zest, fresh flowers, cereal/Shredded Wheat, light vanilla, pine forest/resin and a touch of candlewax.
Palate
Light and quite acidic. There's some vanilla mid-palate but overall crisp, penetrating and zesty.
Finish
The lemon notes stay with it all the way.
Comment
Vibrant but not quite balanced between the sharp citrus notes, wood and fruit.
