Michael Jackson

Nose
Powerfully earthy-fruity perfumes. Fruit skins. Fruit boxes at a market.
Palate
Smooth and syrupy. Sweet. Peachy, orangey.
Finish
Assertive. Dry. Peach stones. Rind-like. Woody.
Comment
I am pleased that this very rare malt has been made available. Ladyburn is a product about which I am frequently asked. Sad to say, its greatest appeal is as a collector's item.

Jim Murray

Nose
Varying shades of light oak have not entirely dimmed the malt. Just a tad spirity but pleasant with minimum complexity.
Palate
Oak, oak and more (spicy) oak.
Finish
Oak.
Comment
This has lost all trace of shape and form. Pretty one-dimensional yet easily drinkable thanks to a singular malty sweetness, especially towards the very end. Don't bother opening.
