Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Lightly salty and peaty. Black chocolate.

Finish: Gentle fruity dryness.
Comment: Gentle, but complex as the flavours open.
7.5
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: A lively aroma bristling with heather and a hint of honey and prickly malt notes.
Palate: Firm and dry mouthfeel suggests a busy malt: after a short lull much fruitier, fleshy notes appear.
Finish: This is where it comes good: massive complexity sparked off by a touch of smoke and more heather. Fabulous and faultless bittersweet balance.
Comment: Takes time to get going, but worth the wait.
