Michael Jackson

Burnt-heather smokiness. Sappy oak.
Very luxurious. Beeswax and honey. Bitter black chocolate. Treacle toffee. Anise.
Spicy. satisfying. Long.
This is an urbane whisky that will not easily reveal itself. Take your time with it. Enjoy its company.

Jim Murray

Wild blackberries add some fruity lustre to an otherwise oaky yet understated aroma.
An explosion of grape and spice.
Long, continually fruity yet still smoky.
Anyone who reckons Glenfiddich is not a top-rate distillery should sample this.
