Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Smoky. Toasting almonds. Crème brûlée.
Palate: Firm, smoky, oaky, slightly astringent.
Finish: Smokiness. Sweetness. Hot peppermints.
Comment: This is on the woody side. A little too woody for me in its late astringency, but it is always a privilege to taste such old whiskies.
