Michael Jackson

Nose
Very scented, appleskin dryness. Oily, cereal-grain.
Palate
Light, oily, grassy. Lightly malty and cookie-like. Some vanilla sweetness.
Finish
Crisp, clean. Hint of charcoal.
Comment
A pleasant, light-tasting malt.

Jim Murray

Nose
Fresh, malty, and amazingly fruity. Loads of citrus and traces of apple. There is just a very faint touch of ammonia to this vatting, which is not normally the case.
Palate
Intense malt with a distinctive, coppery richness. Spicy, with a fine sweet/dry balance. But the oak does start making a point.
Finish
Dry and lacking true depth.
Comment
Perhaps the most inconsistent brand from Cooley. Not the finest expression of its normally impressive single malt; usually there is greater clarity and depth.
