Michael Jackson

Nose
Perfumy. Floral. Slightly oily. Seedcake?
Palate
Beautifully rounded. Nutty. Grainy. Grassy. Sweet.
Finish
Brown sugar. Rum butter. Remarkably long.
Comment
Glenkinchie was always robust for a lowlander, and this expression is more so. Again, it works: the typical grassy sweetness brought out by a touch of sherry.

Dave Broom

Nose
Sweet, soft and inviting: hot fruit scones, honey, orange, barley sugar and a hint of struck match.
Palate
Good balance between sweet cooked fruits and dried nuttiness. Good texture with a sweet malty centre.
Finish
Clean and soft.
Comment
The finish gives a subtle extra layer of flavour rather than dominating.
