Michael Jackson

Nose
A hint of (appetising) phenol. Polished oak.
Palate
Robust exchange of sweetness and dryness. Juicy flavours from the oak. Vanilla, violets, sherry.
Finish
Apricot. Prunes in Armagnac. Sappy.
Comment
A malt that dares to be truly oaky. Thank heavens for boldness and individuality in a world where blandness is always an easier option. This beautiful old distillery is Chivas' showpiece, but it is more than a pretty face.

Dave Broom

Nose
Fragrant with citrus (orange peel), flowers (freesia), spice, and a hint of cream-filled choux pastry. Juicy! Water pulls out more weighty malty notes.
Palate
Lovely mid-weight malt that's softer than the nose initially suggests. Great momentum in the mouth with cranachan, soft baked fruits, fruit cake, syrup, apricot and malt. It dances on the tongue.
Finish
Bursts into life.
Comment
Charming, subtle and gorgeous.
