Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Polished oak.
Palate: Sugared almonds, spicy; flowery, fresh herbs. A dash of herbal, leafy, flowery peatiness.
Finish: Sweet, flowery, long, smooth.
Comment: Has the complexity I expect from The Glenlivet.
9.0
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Ripe figs amidst oak and malt. Delicously fruity.
Palate: Sherry and spice, oak and honey. Much maltier middle. Balance of bitterness and sweetness.
Finish: Lots of vanilla plus grapiness and gentle smoke.
Comment: Excellent character, though the oak has taken a firmer grip than on the 1967; this is never quite so rich.
