Michael Jackson

Nose
Very aromatic. Waxy orange skins. Linseed oil. Leather.
Palate
Big, oily, creamy, sociable.
Finish
Delicate. Peppery. More-ish.
Comment
A superb Irish for everyday drinking. I love this, though not quite as much as the 1780.

Jim Murray

Nose
A meeting of Oloroso and crisp pot still character. Malty, too. Lovely fruitcake richness, though not as sweet as in recent years.
Palate
Very firm, oily, intense and mouthfilling.
Finish
A hint of spice counters an increasing oaky bitterness though the barley and sherry lasts to the very end.
Comment
Five or six years back I panned this whiskey: it was lacking in pot still character. Not any more. Now genuinely impressive, charming and characterful.
