Michael Jackson

Nose
Lemongrass. Lime.
Palate
Medium. Smooth. Sweetish, very toasty, malt character. Well-balanced.
Finish
Nice balancing dryness. Leafy.
Comment
Light but firm and satisfying. A welcome newcomer for everyday drinking.

Jim Murray

Nose
No shyness to the firm, extra-clean grain, but the malt does balance things out beautifully. The fruit has receded in recent years but there are still hints of apple and grape.
Palate
Fabulously lush, honeyed and delicately malted. The grain adds complexity.
Finish
Still lush, moderately sweet, slightly grapey. The early spices vanish and leave some oak and a grainy firmness.
Comment
A satisfying, finely balanced dram which again shows Cooley's decent grain to good effect.
