Michael Jackson

Nose
Smoky, "garden bonfire" sweetness, heathery, malty, hint of sherry.
Palate
Exceptionally smooth. Succulent, with smoky dryness, heathery-honey sweetness and maltiness.
Finish
Teasing, heathery, delicious.
Comment
A beautifully balance classic islander.

Jim Murray

Nose
One of the world's most subtle and teasing noses: delicate wafts of smoke mingle effortlessly with sweet malt, a hint of oaky salt, apples, old polished leather and trademark heather.
Palate
Intensely malty and fresh at first, and then a lingering smoky depth adds weight. Fabulous bitter-sweet balance which pans out on the sweet side with a gentle build-up of honey.
Finish
Long, smoky with a heathers dryness and spice.
Comment
This malt changes shape slightly from vatting to vatting, with the smokiness, honey, malt and heather each having turns at domination. A 12 Years Old classic.
