Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Creamy, flowery. Very faint fresh peat-smoke.
Palate: Clean and dryish and nutty at first. Then creamy and toffeeish, with hints of banana.
Finish: Surprisingly powerful sweet lime flavour. Flowery. Developing light dryness.
Comment: A lovely whisky for one so young. What will it be like at two or three times this age?
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: A trace of sulphur makes for a discordant opening, but there is a big malt character, clean and sweet, which makes amends.
Palate: Again, immediately malt-sweet and intense with soft, chewy cream toffee depth. A little grapey fruitiness also in evidence.
Finish: Very long; malty with delicate spice. Excellent sweet/dry balance.
Comment: Quite exceptional for its age and pretty complex too. But loses marks for the poor nose.
