Michael Jackson

Nose
Very aromatic. Butterscotch, honey. Acacia. Faint peat.
Palate
Buttery maltiness. Honey. Orange. Linctus-like. Hint of vanilla. Juicy oak.
Finish
Orange skins. Lemongrass. Lightly peaty balancing dryness.
Comment
A beautifully balanced classic Speyside whisky.

Jim Murray

Nose
Beautifully delicate and floral with a layer of peat. Bourbon-style vanilla adds age, approaching perfection in Balvenie terms.
Palate
Oily rush of malt. Vanilla and bourbon kick and then infusion of spices and bitter chocolate.
Finish
Dries out and becomes vanilla rich. Remains cocoa dominant.
Comment
An astounding whisky for its age; head and shoulders above its Glenfiddich stablemate.
