Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Incongruously, very fresh. Fudge with vanilla essence and pistachio nuts.
Palate: Silky. Fresh, appetising. Sweet but not cloying. Light, fresh, delicate, notes of orange-blossom honey.
Finish: Very gentle acidity gives balancing dryness.
Comment: Delicious whisky, of true sophistication and style. Tasted blindfold, it seems a perfect whisky for today, not an evocation of the past. I would re-package it as 2041.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Light to medium-bodied. Attractive earthy notes with some smoke, a hint of bashed neeps. Gentle, subtle and malty.
Palate: Soft and rounded, with butterscotch, light pepperiness, then the earthy, lightly smoky character reappears. Well balanced.
Finish: Light, short, earthy.
Comment: Controlled. A very drinkable young Macallan.
