Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Sweet. Marzipan. Notably nutty. Very heavy sherry (slightly tar-like, iron-ish). First-fill dry Oloroso? It tastes more like Pedro Ximinez.
Palate: Soft, smooth, juicy. Malty nuttiness. Liquorice.
Finish: A firm, assertive, hug. Enwrapping.
Comment: Well-rounded, but the balancing dryness can be slightly bitter.
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Mellow, sherry-dominant nose. Tobacco leaf, orange pekoe tea, walnut, caramelised fruit. Mint, leather, toffee and butter. In time it gets even sweeter.
Palate: Sweet and silky with well integrated sherry wood overlaying the creamy/minty character. Ripe and soft.
Finish: Light chocolate and some dried fruit.
Comment: Good for such a young Aberlour. Sherry in balance.
