Michael Jackson

Nose
Peaty, smoky, almost sooty.
Palate
Firm, slippery. Treacly, oaky. The oak is big but never overpowering.
Finish
Like eating hard butterscotch flavoured with root ginger, while indulging the odd post-prandial burp of Christmas pudding.
Comment
A beautifully composed, luxurious whisky.

Jim Murray

Nose
Toffee and sherry hand in hand, alongside ripe apples and grape. Sweet and sexy.
Palate
Mouth-filling and malty, sandwiched by some fine and extremely clean sherry notes.
Finish
Lingering Oloroso and liquorice; good age but light enough for the malt, spice and smoke finish.
Comment
Magnificent finesse and charm makes this a Macallan to die for.
