Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Hugely aromatic. Spicy. Mustardy.
Palate: Oily. Very lively. Extraordinarily spicy. Mustard, cumin seeds, coriander seed, Chinese parsley (cilantro).

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Light smoke with gentle soft fruits and hints of orange leaf, hot bracken, privet blossom and a maritime edge. Quite sexy.
Palate: Oily jumpers and a silky texture. Well balanced with smoke kicking in. Light.
Finish: Soft.
Comment: Typical Clynelish in its texture but a smokier than usual example.
