Michael Jackson

Nose
Sherryish, perfumy, pear-skins.
Palate
Very sherryish; assertive. Some malty chewiness. Vanilla. Soft, sweet, pear-like fruitiness, moving to a spicy dryness.
Finish
Spicy, perfumy, intensely dry.
Comment
Pittyvaich has always seemed a bit spirity to me, like a Scottish grappa. This version is softened slightly by the sherry.

Jim Murray

Nose
Caramel, pulped fruit and oak. Not unpleasant, but curiously artificial. Almost brandy-like.
Palate
Fat and fruity, some sweet malt.
Finish
Coffee-biscuit sweetness and mealiness; not bad, but doesn't seem to hang right.
Comment
A weird whisky all round. Pleasing character, but just doesn't feel right.
