Michael Jackson

Nose
Oily, lightly piney, earthy, salty, dry.
Palate
Sweetish, soft, malty, oily, slowly developing a slight island dryness and saltiness.
Finish
A little malty sweetness and some saltiness.
Comment
A lovely aperitif.

Jim Murray

Nose
Enormously fruity at first; a salad of under and overripe banana, raisin and apple. The malty notes are flat and lifeless by comparison, but offer balance.
Palate
Much more upfront, fresher malt than on the nose with a light, though chewy, oakiness. A spicy dryness offers some pizazz.
Finish
More oak and softer vanilla with a lingering maltiness.
Comment
Still a hit-and-miss dram, though this sample was simple and strictly middle of the road. Very quaffable all the same.
