Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Very aromatic, indeed. Sexily earthy. Peaty, junipery, fruity.
Palate: Robust malt and grain. Very lively. Scenty spiciness. Gingery. Comes on hot and strong.
Finish: Island smokiness and saltiness emerging: lingering and insistent.
Comment: Full of youthful daring, but with enough stamina to last all night (this means that you and your buddy will probably drink the whole bottle).
Taster   Paul Pacult
Nose: Feathery wisps of dry grain emerge after a few moments of air contact. Beyond that are coy notes of holiday spice and dark caramel. Washes out after only three minutes.
Palate: Runs the risk of being too sugary-sweet at palate entry as the brown sugar taste and medium-bodied texture coat the tongue like a wool blanket. The mid-palate is better behaved, offering subtler tastes of toasted walnut, pine-nut, and ripe red fruit.
Finish: The aftertaste is very extended, a tad fiery, and exhibits a quick flash of brine/peat.
Comment: I liked this blend more than the last time I sampled it blind several years ago.
