Michael Jackson

Nose
Sweetshops. Icing sugar. Liquorice. Very delicate hint of rooty peatiness.
Palate
Silky-smooth. Nougat. Dried apricots. Anis.
Finish
A suggestion of orange. Teasing delicate, gently soothing.
Comment
The flavour metaphors evoke childhood, but this is a very adult, sophisticated malt.

Jim Murray

Nose
Charming acacia honey and demerara sugar within a floral theme of pansies and violets.
Palate
Initially enclosed and oaky. Pans out to allow a richer, toffee-cream and intensely malty middle.
Finish
Medium length, simple mixture of oak and barley.
Comment
A well-sculpted malt with a restrained richness and limited complexity. Lovely weight throughout.
