Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Fabulously bitter sweet nose, breakfast time stuff with marmalade and honey. Thrilling complexity.
Palate: Again, a peculiarly thin mouthfeel. Begins oaky dry and then a surge of malt helps sweeten things a little. And a delightful spice buzz forms a permanent, lively strata.
Finish: A milky oakiness with dry coconut nuttiness.
Comment: An improvement from the 17 Years Old of old, which doesn't even begin to show its big age.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Hint of lemon marmalade.
Palate: Light but creamy. Lightly nutty. Then oily perfuminess.
Finish: Oily. Nutty. Orange peel.
Comment: Gentle, but quite succulent.
