Michael Jackson

Nose
Very distinctive, clean, oaky peatiness. This character is in the background throughout.
Palate
Flowery. Fudgy. Toffeeish. Nutty. Very soft, strained spiciness. Then toasty and peaty.
Finish
Firm, clean (almost crisp), peatiness. Then long, very soft, spicy and remarkably warming.
Comment
Made when the distillery had its own maltings, and an eloquent advocate for such an arrangement.

Jim Murray

Nose
A lighter, more flowery aroma but still not lacking in mixed fruit. There is an ethereal quality to the vanilla-malt complexity.
Palate
Sweet and delightfully spicy at first, then becomes richer and oilier. Barley sugar sweetness and some creeping oak.
Finish
Wave upon wave of brilliant malt carresses the tastebuds: sometimes sweet, sometimes a little drier.
Comment
For my money the best Glenmorangie I have yet come across: complexity beyond belief. Truly outstanding.
