Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Earthy. The aroma of the maltings. Toasty. Brown sugar.
Palate: Nutty. Sweet. Cereal grain. Slightly grassy.
Finish: Gently silky dryness.
Comment: Approachable and enjoyable, but a little mild-mannered for me. Bring back the peat...please!
7.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Straight-ahead and malty: white pudding, malt bins, turned earth, dried grasses, orange. Mouth watering.
Palate: Light, clean and malty with a soft juicy texture. Orange opal fruits and light spice.
Finish: Clean and fairly short.
Comment: The nicest GG I've tried for a while. Very, very drinkable.
