Michael Jackson

Very distinctive, clean, oaky peatiness. This character is in the background throughout.
Flowery. Fudgy. Toffeeish. Nutty. Very soft, restrained, spiciness. Then toasty and peaty.
Firm, clean (almost crisp), peatiness. Then long, very soft, spicy and remarkably warming.
Illustrates the extra dimension in whiskies when most distilleries did their own malting.

Jim Murray

A lighter, more flowery aroma with mixed fruit. Ethereal quality to the vanilla-malt complexity.
Sweet and delightfully spicy at first, then becomes richer and oilier.
Brilliant malt caresses the tastebuds: some times sweet, sometimes a little drier.
For my money the best Glenmorangie. I have yet come across: complexity beyond belief. Truly outstanding.
