Michael Jackson

Nose
Assertive. Rich, honeyed. Malty. Also fruity. Peach cobbler?
Palate
Big, textured. Perfumy. Passion fruit, peaches, maraschino cherry brandy, almonds.
Finish
Very firm, perfumy and long, with a balancing ginger dryness.
Comment
Is this a vatted malt? Glendullan-plus?

Dave Broom

Nose
Mature. A light fingal note: cep, roasted meat, dry oak. Old cupboards, antique shops.
Palate
Delivers on the palate. Old and quite rich: leather, nut bowl, black fruits, oaky and firm, a hint of smoke. Just enough sweetness to carry.
Finish
Woodland walk in autumn.
Comment
The balance tips things to the oaky side. Good on the palate, but only for lovers of old whisky.
