Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Lashings of sweet honey and nectar and some drier heather and oak. Sublime.
Palate: Rich in toffee apples, melt-in-the-mouth malt.
Finish: Long, Slightly waxy but big oak pressure.
Comment: One of the least smoky renditions you are likely to find, compensated by the honey presence.
8.8
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fresh toast, spread with Nutella.
Palate: Firm, smooth. Sweet, sherryish. Juicy oak. Salt.
Finish: Salt. Wind-blown heather.
Comment: I like the richness but lacks the balance, roundness and complexity of a great Highland Park.
