Michael Jackson

Nose
A depth of honey aromas. Beeswax. Finally, a balancing flowery dryness and faint smokiness.
Palate
Very slow emergence of flavours. Firm, dryish, honey. Biscuity maltiness. A hint of bitter chocolate. A surge of soft, smokiness, with peat.
Finish
Hint of anis. Satisfying. Long.
Comment
Extraordinary flavour development. An astonishingly complex whisky.

Dave Broom

Nose
Slow to open. Elegant and mature. Blue cheese, church halls/hassocks. Light smoke and hint of chocolate.
Palate
Old, but still with a fresh and youthful centre. Good balance.
Finish
Woody, bung cloth.
Comment
Has the extra dimension which sets the finest old whiskies apart.
