Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Sherry again, but this time fabulously clean and precise. Deftly smoked.
Palate: Dry, oaky start; malty; saltiness shows quite early. Fruit-cake richness.
Finish: Lots of oak and intense malt: bittersweet and chewy finale.
Comment: Brilliant whisky with great age.
8.5
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Peaty, leafy, sappy, oaky.
Palate: Nutty, toffeeish, creamy flavours. Lacks development and complexity.
Finish: Dry.
Comment: A little woody.
