Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Seville orange. Fresh leather. Lemongrass. Peat.
Palate: Smooth, sweet. The fruitiest and most estery of the set.
Finish: Sweet grass. Juicy.
Comment: With its floweriness and a hint of peat, this seems to me a classic old-style Speysider.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Finer nose, crisp with toasted almonds and a leaf mulch/earthy richness. Lightly peaty but in time a crème anglaise note mellows things slightly.
Palate: Firm and malty but that ripe apricot fleshiness fills out the mid-palate.
Finish: Chewy yet dry.
Comment: The dry amontillado.
