Michael Jackson

Nose
Clean, fresh. hint of linseed. Nuts. Cake.
Palate
By far the biggest of this selection. Assertive and complex, with lots of development and seemingly infinite dimension. Ginger cake, brazil nuts, treacle.
Finish
Liquorice-like sherry notes.
Comment
Delicious, soothing, contemplative. A great whiskey. Makes me want to get on a plane to Dublin immediately.

Jim Murray

Nose
With Green Spot, the most impressive of Irish noses. There's a fruity, almost rye-like quality, and deft, honeyed sweetness, a touch of sherry, cream soda vanilla and some peppery notes. Breathtaking.
Palate
The flavours take off in all directions. Spiciness and a pot still backbone softened by sherry. Very firm with some toffee.
Finish
Oily, some liquorice and enormous sweet-sour complexity. Spicy and long.
Comment
Not quite perfect, but still an astonishing experience.
