Michael Jackson

Nose
Very fruity, and nutty. Dark fruits, like figs.
Palate
Walnuts. Brandy butter. Big, sweet, malty background.
Finish
Cigar tobacco. Lingering warmth.
Comment
Can the elegant Yamazaki whisky stand up to heavy sherry? In this case, yes. A dexterously balanced malt.

Dave Broom

Nose
Overt ‘sherry' notes: dried fruit, nuts etc. Similar to a palo cortado. A lovely red fruit quality alongside butter, raisin and, in time, toffee apple/baked apple and a hint of smoke.
Palate
Good rich weight and a soft feel. Chewy. Great balance.
Finish
Rounded.
Comment
An elegant, beautifully balanced whisky.
