Michael Jackson

Nose
Perfumey. Passion fruit. Nutty. Marzipan.
Palate
Rich. Complex. Honeyed, creamy, winey, aniseed, almonds.
Finish
Long, cedary, dryish. A wonderful digestif.
Comment
The full, honeyed, richness of the malt combines beautifully with what seems to be a generous kiss of port.

Doug McIvor

Nose
Intensely perfumed, ladies powder pack, passion fruit and toffee banana, and walnuts.
Palate
Creamy, soothing, nutty, with a warm augmenting portwine influence.
Finish
Smooth, cedary with a warming spice.
Comment
An extremely graceful and charmingly feminine dram.

Inspirational distilling
The VIP tour of Balvenie is quite arguably the best Scotland has to offer. Our man indulged himself.
