Michael Jackson

Nose
Potpourri. Spice cupboard. Flapjack. Syrup. Rosewater. Custard.
Palate
Slippery-smooth. Very sweet. Perfumy. Anis. Restrained fruitiness. Candied orange peel. Delicious sherry character. Great depth of flavour.
Finish
Toasty dryness. Long, soothing.
Comment
Quite an achievement. Like the previous 'replica' edition, this is more delicate than the robustly sherried Macallans of today.

Dave Broom

Nose
Citric yet soft and juicy: zabaglione, cereal (Weetabix), orange (Seville), heather blossom, smoke.
Palate
Perfumed and juicily soft with some sweetness. Dried apricot, orange peel, clove-like notes, walnut. Light peat. Dries as you hold it in the mouth. Good weight.
Finish
Sultana cake, coriander powder, hint of smoke.
Comment
Like the touch of peat-when's that batch getting bottled?
