Michael Jackson

Nose
Fragrant, with just the tiniest hint of peat. Grassy. Lemon grass.
Palate
Honeydew melons.
Finish
Full. Firm. Juicy. Peachy maltiness.
Comment
Beautifully balanced with toasted dryness.

Jim Murray

Nose
Slightly musty, coal-gassy, but with a sultana-currant bun, spotted dick suet doughiness.
Palate
Archetypal Cooley malt intensity which clings to the mouth with a firm, fruity oiliness. One dimensional but rather tasty.
Finish
Some oakiness begins to dry out the proceedings, leaving a vanilla-banana residue. Some caramel and demerara sugar adds a lingering sweetness.
Comment
Hmmm...Not quite up to what it was, but still a pretty interesting and enjoyable dram.
