Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Lightly dry. Incense. Flowery.
Palate: Oily, orangey, but more creamy in style.
Finish: Seems very sweet indeed, then suddenly the peat-smoke emerges. Very long.
Comment: Less structure than the youthful version from the distillery or the more mature choice, but enjoyable in its own right. As a dessert malt with trifle?
7.5
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Heady stuff with the oak. Good sweet/dry balance, nonetheless.
Palate: Begins lazily with some non-specific oakiness offering a bland start, then takes off with a malty sweetness tweaked by some peppery notes.
Finish: Pretty flat with a soothing malt-oak finishing.
Comment: The nose and finish do little to set the pulse racing. But it's worth the boring bits for the magnificent middle.
