Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Hazelnuts. The skin of the nut. Papery. Toasty.
Palate: Smooth as polished oak. Treacle-toffee. Walnuts.
Finish: Sappy. Slightly sour.
Comment: Enough character and complexity to withstand the heavy oakiness, but beginning to show its age.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Treacle and molasses, almost fungal. Nut bowl, leather and bitter chocolate, even cold tea.
Palate: Thick to start then increasingly bitter and tannic.
Finish: Dry and bitter.
Comment: A lot of wood...a lot of sherry wood but not a lot of Glen Grant.
