Michael Jackson

Nose
Clean linen. Cedar. Fresh oak. Palo cortado sherry.
Palate
Remarkably smooth. Sweet. Hints of brazil nut and apple.
Finish
Creamy. Hint of lemon pith dryness. Very delicate touch of sherry.
Comment
A lovely, complex, sophisticated malt.

Jim Murray

Nose
Very clean nose: the oak is minimal with honeyed-grassy malt. Beguiling.
Palate
A fabulous, honey-sweet infusion of tender malty notes do take on a waxy middle.
Finish
Bitter-sweet and still waxy with mounting vanilla and even a late hint of cocoa.
Comment
By no means the most complex whisky on the market, but unquestionably one of the most elegant and charming.
