Michael Jackson

Nose
Flowery. A suggestion of peppermint. Black chocolate? Mint crisp?
Palate
Memorable for its challenging complexity and subtlety. Flavours beautifully combined. A touch of sherry. Dances on the tongue.
Finish
Smooth, dry smokiness. Very long.
Comment
A great malt that is enigmatic and sometimes seems reclusive.

Dave Broom

Nose
Huge, meaty (Bovril, roasting tin, oxtail soup) treacle, singed, hint of smoke. Massive concentration.
Palate
Robust and powerful with an almost earthy power. A massive grumbly malt which might not have the complexity of others in its weight division but which delivers a mighty punch.
Finish
Long.
Comment
Tell me this and Knockando share similar characteristics. A single Speyside style? I think not.
