Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fragrant, with just the tiniest hint of peat. Grassy. Lemon grass.
Palate: Honeydew melons.
Finish: Full. Firm. Juicy. Peachy maltiness.
Comment: Beautifully balanced with toasted dryness.
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Slightly musty, coal-gassy, but with a sultana-currant bun, spotted dick suet doughiness.
Palate: Archetypal Cooley malt intensity which clings to the mouth with a firm, fruity oiliness. One dimensional but rather tasty.
Finish: Some oakiness begins to dry out the proceedings, leaving a vanilla-banana residue. Some caramel and demerara sugar adds a lingering sweetness.
Comment: Hmmm...Not quite up to what it was, but still a pretty interesting and enjoyable dram.
