Michael Jackson

Nose
Soft. Lemongrass. Orange flower water. Very restrained phenols.
Palate
Rich oiliness. Linseed. Lemon zest. A martini with a twist.
Finish
Soothing, appetising.
Comment
A touch sophisticated for the likes of me. Where are those stinging iodine notes? They are in there somewhere, but beautifully balanced and rounded.

Dave Broom

Nose
Intriguing mix of smoke and cream. Coal tar soap, deck oil, dried seaweed, tar. Sugared almond and vanilla. Great balance.
Palate
A slow starter. Quite sweet then the peat ramps up into Germoline iodine. A silky feel.
Finish
Medicinal and dry.
Comment
Available via the website. A classic Laphroaig – much better than the 15 Years Old.
