Michael Jackson

Nose
Sherry. Toast. Polished oak.
Palate
Rich. Very creamy. Freshly peeled Satsumas. Very bitter black chocolate. Astonishing length.
Finish
Violets. Lingering, scented, fragrant, smokiness.
Comment
My favourite expression of whisky's greatest all rounder. Sets an incredibly high standard for Highland Park to maintain.

Jim Murray

Nose
One of the most herbal noses around. Exceptional.
Palate
Perhaps the most melt-in-the mouth malt of all time. A hint of something fruity moistens the mouth.
Finish
Lazy and light; smoky barley and mildly kippery oiliness.
Comment
Distilled during one of the best periods in HP's recent history. If only they had bottled at 46!! One of all time greats, for all that.
