Michael Jackson

Nose
Fruity. Creamy. Vanilla. Some woody dryness.
Palate
Syrupy. Sweet. Green fruits – or chillies.
Finish
Burning sensation of having bitten into a chilli pepper.
Comment
Interesting in its own right. Hard to envisage as a Macallan, especially with its pale, greeny-gold colour.

Martine Nouet

Nose
Rooty, leafy and spicy. Fresh ginger root, bitter orange. White chocolate. Dill. A slight butyric note. Not the usual sherry nose.
Palate
Sweet and spicy. Very oaky. Spices burn the tongue even with water added. Fresh ginger root.
Finish
Very warm, a touch of smoke (burnt wood).
Comment
An odd Macallan. Light in colour. Quite aggressive, a spicy bite. Where is the elegance and roundness? Macallan on the dark side of the moon!
