Michael Jackson

Nose
Minerally. A hint of sulphur.
Palate
Quite rich. Nutty, with a suggestion of artichoke. A touch of salt, then a burst of freshly milled pepper.
Finish
Volcanic. Reverberating.
Comment
Less instantly explosive than the regular 10. The flavours in the 25 are more tightly combined and take longer to unfold. You pays your money...

Dave Broom

Nose
Robust with plenty of scented smoke (burning heather) balanced by soft Dundee cake/singed orange peel aromas.
Palate
Full and ripe to start, plenty of mellow fruits (sultana, date, fig) then an explosion of dry smoke. A complex mouthful.
Finish
Long, complex, dry peppery heather root
Comment
The distillery character sings out. A muscular, smoky yet rounded malt. Superb.
