Michael Jackson

Nose
An evocative sootiness over oaky Calvados aromas.
Palate
Sweet, treacly, start. Quickly moves to peppery, earthy, peaty and burnt flavours. Phenol. Some sulphur.
Finish
Oaky, woody.
Comment
I am a great devotee of the older Macallans, but this one is too woody for me.

Dave Broom

Nose
Clove, incense, coffee grounds, raisin, date, liquorice, rubber and a hint of rancio.
Palate
There's gunky earth tones, coal fires/soot but also a lovely bramble fruitiness. Spicy, figgy clove.
Finish
Bone dry, cigar smoke, dried malt.
Comment
A bit scary. A 50 Years Old malt with stunning balance and vivaciousness...but I can't afford it on my wages.
