Michael Jackson

Nose
Sweet tobacco. Scented: sandalwood, walnuts.
Palate
Sultanas, lemons, vanilla, butterscotch, toasted almonds. Very restrained sweetness.
Finish
Long and soothing. Late hint of spicy, heathery smoke.
Comment
Some drinkers might perfer this great whisky slightly younger and fresher. Those who like a touch of oak will find this very elegant.

Jim Murray

Nose
Powering bourbon sweetness. Lashings of oak and vanilla with liquorice and plummy fruit. Tired, but hanging on.
Palate
Creamy and spicy with a large smoky, oaky background. Just enough honey comes through to give a Highland Park signature.
Finish
Dry, chalky and some late sensuous peat lift this from a weary start. Lovely salty sea tang lingers, too.
Comment
This would never have survived another summer. Impressive brinkmanship, though still over-aged.
