Michael Jackson

Nose
Fudge. Honey. A hint of heather. Very soft.
Palate
Intensely sweet and Sauternes-like. Or perhaps orange muscat? With water, yet sweeter and fruitier.
Finish
Becoming more like dark, clear, liquid, honey.
Comment
Extraordinarily distinctive. All the characteristics I expect in Balvenie, but I have never experienced them in such a concentrated intensity.

Dave Broom

Nose
An elegant, soft, luscious, nose that reminds you of pancakes dripping with butter and honey.
Palate
Soft and mouthfilling with little spikes of wood notes and citrus. Dries as it develops.
Finish
Ripe soft and long, drying into wood then burnt orange.
Comment
Complex, luscious, gorgeous.
