Michael Jackson

Nose
Sherry and orange skins.
Palate
Beautifully combined mellow flavours: nutty, sweet, sherry, very orangy fruitiness, heather, cinnamon spiciness.
Finish
Long, tingling. Very warming.
Comment
Yet richer, and fruitier.

Jim Murray

Nose
A close relation to the Founder's Reserve, with extra vanilla and honey plus the subtlest of Oloroso influences. Delicate for its age.
Palate
Sweet and honeyed with intense malt meeting the soft peat and controlled sherry fruitiness.
Finish
Smoky and a little spicy with a bigger vanilla tang.
Comment
A more intense malt than the Founder's Reserve. Despite its finesse, it is just shaded in regard to all-round complexity. Still nothing short of glorious.
