Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Earthy, nutty, sherry.
Palate: Rich, big. Orange toffee. Lively.
Finish: Long, peppery, spicy. All spice.
Comment: With its distinctly reddish chestnut colour, this is clearly well sherried. An uncomplicated, robust, Macallan. Simply delicious.
9.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: A little slick undiluted: apple, resin and orange. Water brings out rubber, fruits, nuts, orange peel and treacle. Autumnal.
Palate: Slightly slick sweet note. Youth and high alcohol combined makes it a pretty lively mouthful.
Finish: Lemon balm, pepper and sherry notes, then alcohol heat. After the fires die there's dry wood, liquorice and soot.
Comment: Fiery. Alcohol dominates too much for me.
