Michael Jackson

Nose
Rosebank's typical camomile.
Palate
Lightly creamy. Flowery sweetness.
Finish
Mint imperials.
Comment
Relatively young, but beginning to weary nonetheless. Perhaps this tiredness is caused by worry about the future. A feminine whisky that has lost the first bloom of youth. Snatch a kiss while you can.

Dave Broom

Nose
Fragrant. Light fruits, fresh pear, creamy and zingy-ginger beer? There's smoke and a hint of green, sappy sticks.
Palate
It rolls nicely in the mouth. Elegant, with little spikes of flavour: nut, grass and flowers laid on top. Light and delicate. Soft, clean and quite floral.
Finish
It all zips into life at the end.
Comment
This remains a cracking dram. Shame the distillery is being bulldozed. No, make that a disgrace.
