Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Gentle sea fragrance. Very appetising.
Palate: Cinnamon toast, then rhubarby fruitiness and wineyness. Appetisingly sourish acidity.
Finish: The coastal whisky and near-coastal sherry combine in a clinching hug of saltiness and oakiness.
Comment: A marriage made in heaven.
Taster   Doug McIvor
Nose: Lightly caramel and winey, cream crackers, soft brine.
Palate: Fuller, creamy textures, chocolate liqueurs?
Finish: Long, chocolatey, gently smoky, salty, prickling finale.
Comment: A wonderfully teasing complex and balanced creation.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Gentle sea fragrance. Very appetising.
Palate: Very delicate and teasing. Lightly toasty. Cinnamon toast. Faintly rhubarby fruitiness and wineyness, tinge of sourish acidity.
Finish: Very salty.
Comment: The light saltiness in a coastal whisky and near-coastal sherry make this a delight.
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Crisp and dry with an enticing hint of smoke. This sherry is wonderfully delicate.
Palate: Clean and dry with complex spices. Brilliantly balanced.
Finish: Long oaky finale that lingers over the Fino influence.
Comment: Outstanding stuff from Glenmorangie, and for my money their most delicate expression yet.
