Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Clean. Dry. Perfumy. Apple skins.
Palate: Vanilla. Freshly cut oak. Forest floor. Pine. Resin. Menthol.

Comment: Lean, limber and characteristically smoky. A clear sense of Hakushu malt without heavy wood influence.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Peaty, heading towards the medicinal side of the spectrum. Some sweet fruit and a light menthol note, applewood fires.
Palate: Dry. The smoke hits at the deepest point of the palate but a real sweet fruity/lemony note softens things nicely. Fairly firm but has a good range of flavours.
Finish: Peppery.
Comment: More gentle than the rest of the range.
