Michael Jackson

Nose
Syrupy. Flowering currant. Apricot. Lemon. Sweet and dry. Spicy.
Palate
Firm but creamy. Honeyed.
Finish
Sweet grass. Some peatiness and late sappy oak.
Comment
Despite a relatively full colour, suggesting plenty of sherry, the Macallan flavours shine through. The driest of these bottlings.

Dave Broom

Nose
Juicy: madeira cake, white peach, currant, cocoa, brazil nut – all with a turfy/smoky, pipe tobacco/resin/pitch undertow.
Palate
Medium dry yet with a pleasant oiliness.
Finish
Good length with hints of citrus, plump sultanas and smoke.
Comment
The palo cortado of the range.
