Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Intensely smoky. Dry, clean, tangy smoke. Like standing downwind of the barbecue while steaks are char-grilled on the beach.
Palate: Firm, very smooth, then explodes on the tongue.
Finish: Hot. Alcoholic. A shock to the system.
Comment: The elemental opposite of the sophisticated Lord of the Isles.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sweet yet pungently smoky: lime marmalade and peat fires on the beach, malt, cocoa powder, salted herring.
Palate: Rich, concentrated and powerful. Sooty with light tarry/liquorice touches. The lime returns. Great presence but subtle in its own way.
Finish: Long. Biscuity malt.
Comment: Some dram!
