Michael Jackson

Nose
Fruitcake. Faint burnt currants.
Palate
Cakey, sherryish, sultanas with a malty, grassy, sweetness.
Finish
Peatier than I remember but becomes rich and spicy.
Comment
Complex, beautifully rounded and soothing.

Jim Murray

Nose
The sherry is not quite as clean as it might be: also cuts out the more intricate malt notes. Quite doughy.
Palate
Good bitter-sweet balance from the off but rather hot and spirity. Again some sherry, fruity notes but not quite as in harmony as you'd expect.
Finish
Very dry and slightly bitter. Too much vanilla.
Comment
Not a patch on the old style Lochnagar when the bourbon cask was king.
