Michael Jackson

Nose
Polished oak.
Palate
Very lively. Sweet maltiness. Touch of vanilla, developing to a perfumy spiciness.
Finish
Falls away somewhat. Grainy.
Comment
Soothing. A touch of more-ish dryness.

Jim Murray

Nose
A big, intense heavy malt-rich nose with the cleanest of sherry backgrounds. Dark cherries and ripe plums.
Palate
Intriguingly deep; packed with grapey fruitiness. The malt clings to the mouth; the body is oily and full. A much lighter grain note thins it slightly.
Finish
Custard-cream sweetness gives way to drier grains plus some juniper on the very end.
Comment
A favourite. The sherry also has a kind of port-wood fruitiness to it, but it is the malt that is so memorable.
