Michael Jackson

Nose
Wonderful aroma. Pungent, smoke-accented, rounded.
Palate
Full maltiness, slightly syrupy, with sourness and a very big pepperiness developing.
Finish
Very peppery, huge, long.
Comment
Always a classic, though I still miss the 8 Years Old.

Jim Murray

Nose
A razor-sharp spiciness lances through demerara sweetness and rich peat. Absolutely magnificent.
Palate
The enormous build up of spice adds to the multi-layered peat. The sweetness is almost like freshly crushed grist. Wave upon wave, layer upon layer of complexity.
Finish
Massively warming and still spicy. The peat lingers while the spice bristles.
Comment
A dram to be savoured and celebrated.
