Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Raspberry vinegar. Winey. A fruity, French Syrah, perhaps?
Palate: Firm, sweetly fruity. Extraordinarily so. Kumquats. Brown sugar. Crêpes Suzette.
Finish: Crème Anglaise. Vanilla. Oak.
Comment: Extraordinarily red colour. The sweetness is almost overwhelming. The ultimate dessert whisky.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Dry, savoury/wooded notes though there's some butter that softens things a little. A mix of walnut, cherryade and clootie dumpling.
Palate: Powerful, intense and full-bodied with a leathery tone. Sweet. Solid ripe and rich.
Finish: Almost tarry. Marmite.
Comment: Rich and heavy. Plenty of nutty sherry-derived notes. It's good but just lacks complexity.
