Michael Jackson

Nose
Moist Dundee cake topped with toasted almonds. Candied peel. Lemony.
Palate
Astonishing fresh, spicy, sweet, toffeeish, buttery, vanilla, charred oak, peaty dryness.
Finish
Honey, cinnamon and ginger.
Comment
This one I loved. The flavours have melded beautifully, in what must have been an excellent cask.

Dave Broom

Nose
Biscuity start to the nose. Preserved lemon, ginger, cumin, allspice.
Palate
A soft start to the nose. A juicily soft centre.
Finish
Long with a tickle of smoke.
Comment
Fascinating. A very different style of Macallan. If you buy for your unopened collection, get a miniature as well so you can at least try it.
