Michael Jackson

Nose
Soft, rounded. Polished walnut.
Palate
Smooth, malty, honeyish, slightly syrupy.
Finish
Honeyish. A touch of orange.
Comment
Very easily drinkable. Well matured, as the label suggests. Enjoyable. Appetising. Slightly drier with a splash of water, but not too much. Too good for a mizuwari.

Jim Murray

Nose
Light for all its colour-attractive green fresh grain with some caramel.
Palate
Lively. A deep grain middle on which the most delicate of malt notes hang. Firm, but deliciously sweet.
Finish
Chewy with a strong build up of oak, suggesting decent age.
Comment
Enjoyable if simplistic, the grain holds power here. An attractive session whisky.
