Michael Jackson

Nose
Peach cobbler. Raisins.
Palate
Sherry-soaked sponge. Fudge. Cookies. Sweet at first and then dry. Chocolate digestive?
Finish
Suddenly the salt is back.
Comment
If you like whisky on your therapeutic porridge (and who doesn't?) this is the salty one.

Jim Murray

Nose
Tainted mildly by sulphur. Fruitcake rich, nonetheless, and pretty sweet despite the drier oaky tones.
Palate
Big, irrespective of the strength. Quite peppery, smoky and enticingly sweet with hickory? A gently salty edge with subtle build up of malty complexity.
Finish
Lingering peat. Vanilla oak guarantees a soft finale than might be expected.
Comment
A genuinely delightful malt that shows great charisma beyond the so-so nose.
