Michael Jackson

Nose
Very perfumy. The typically peachy bouquet of The Glenlivet seems to be accentuated.
Palate
Firm, medium to full, body. Very smooth. Rich and fruity, with slightly more peat than usual.
Finish
Silky, creamy tastes. Vanilla. Some, very restrained, burnt grass, dryness.
Comment
Lacks the subtlety of a more conventional Glenlivet, but will charm some consumers with a richer, creamier, style. Very drinkable indeed.

Dave Broom

Nose
Candy floss, dry spices, the smell of the woodshed. In time overripe banana, cherries, coconut and orange appear.
Palate
Very sweet start with ripe fruits, then wood starts to dominate.
Finish
The wood takes over making it a pretty dry experience.
Comment
Unbalanced, the high-impact of new cask sits uncomfortably with the distillery character.
