Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Assertive, rounded, appetising, smokiness. Some maltiness, reminiscent of Darjeeling tea.
Palate: Silky-smooth treacle toffee.
Finish: Chewy. Rooty. Anis. Liquorice.
Comment: I have always had a quiet fancy for this malt. It has a lot character: demonstrated here in the way it stands up to such heavy sherry.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Dates, treacle, leather, fruit cake, smoke and a perfumed note.
Palate: That perfumed character runs against the figgy, rich spirit unbalancing the whisky.
Finish: Smoky. Dry and slightly tannic.
Comment: Robust but the cask is in charge.
