Michael Jackson

Nose
Very fresh in both its heathery peatiness and its juicy, sweet, sherry. Appetising.
Palate
Sweet, flowery, honey-syrup, butter, toast and butter.
Finish
Cinnamon. Lightly spicy dryness. Well-done toast. Gently sustaining.
Comment
Slightly sweeter, fuller and more structured than an earlier (younger) version with no age statement.

Jim Murray

Nose
Stunning: oak and hint of marzipan and cherries. The malt is sweet and multi-layered.
Palate
Initially light with sweet cereal notes and then the oak kicks in to add a drier dimension.
Finish
Toasty with hints of hickory and chocolate fudge. Quite long.
Comment
A substantial malt, which on the palate does not match the complexity of outstanding nose.
