Michael Jackson

Nose
Full, rounded. Fudge, white chocolate, Oloroso sherry, honey, melon, lemon. Fruity .
Palate
More honey, slightly chewy. Nutty toffee. Nougat. Pistachio nuts. Turkish delight. Cedar.
Finish
Lemon, honey, roses. Fragrant, smooth. Balancing dryness.
Comment
Have this one with dessert.

Jim Murray

Nose
Here the heather returns and the expense of the silkier honey. The peat also plays a big part, but fails to keep the emerging oak under a tight enough leash.
Palate
An unusually oaky dryness makes way for a steady build-up of sweetening honey. Still beautifully peated.
Finish
A much drier finish than the 18 Years Old but smouldering peat adds charm and stability. Some late honey gives a degree of complexity.
Comment
Still haven't come across a 25 Years Old which quite matches the 18 Years Old, but this is a lovely whisky nonetheless and holds its shape and character briliantly for such an old lady. Charming.
