Michael Jackson

Nose
Incongruously, very fresh. Fudge with vanilla essence and pistachio nuts.
Palate
Silky. Fresh, appetising. Sweet but not cloying. Light, fresh, delicate, notes of orange-blossom honey.
Finish
Very gentle acidity gives balancing dryness.
Comment
Delicious whisky, of true sophistication and style. Tasted blindfold, it seems a perfect whisky for today, not an evocation of the past. I would re-package it as 2041.

Dave Broom

Nose
Light to medium-bodied. Attractive earthy notes with some smoke, a hint of bashed neeps. Gentle, subtle and malty.
Palate
Soft and rounded, with butterscotch, light pepperiness, then the earthy, lightly smoky character reappears. Well balanced.
Finish
Light, short, earthy.
Comment
Controlled. A very drinkable young Macallan.
