Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Smoky. Treacle toffee.
Palate: Chewy. Fruity. Cherries. Chocolatey.
Finish: Bitter chocolate. Concentrated. Intense.
Comment: I would love this whisky if it had a little less wood. I want to love it anyway, but in the end the wood defeats me.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Powerful intense and resinous: treacle, raspberry, coffee. Light smoke giving a burnt note. Gutsy European oak in spades.
Palate: Rich and mouthfilling, reminiscent of Brandy de Jerez: stewed plum, leather, PX, burnt raisins. Dry and densely wooded.
Finish: Fruit cake.
Comment: A fine example of European oak in action.
