Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Drily flowery-herbal aromas. Roses. Vanilla. Moving to a suggestion of tobacco.
Palate: Smooth, with tightly-combined flavours. Some buttery maltiness. Candied lemon peel. Cinnamon. Garden mint.
Finish: A surge of spiciness. Very long. Warming.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Initially quite crisp with a fairly hot nose burn and citric. Seems strangely immature with very faint sherried notes.
Palate: A creamy centre, but everything is muted.
Finish: A little short with minty tones.
Comment: Easily drowned with water. The standard 15 Years Old is stunning, but this just seems gawky and awkward. There are so many Aberlour variants on the market - I'm getting mightily confused.
