Michael Jackson

Nose
Peaty. Lightly phenolic.
Palate
Sweet, syrupy. Lightly creamy. Developing light floweriness and sugared almonds.
Finish
Peach-stone notes. Attenuated. Dry.
Comment
A little woody. Choice of cask?

Jim Murray

Nose
Dry sherry and lots of natural caramel.
Palate
Big mouthfeel with lots of ripe fruit. Sweet throughout, like sugared plums and custard.
Finish
The longest, most full-bodied finale of all; rich saline oakiness and toasty malt. The rich fruit is never far away.
Comment
A big whisky which shows not all Speysiders are shrinking violets. Beautifully weighted throughout; breathtaking complexity.
