Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Smoothly aromatic. Nutty malt. Smoky. Very good, appetising medicinal Islay character.
Palate: Rounded, firm, malty, dry creaminess. Tightly combined flavours.
Finish: Leafy, ferny, malty, sandy, smoky.
Comment: A touch of astringency that seems to be more than Islay iodine.
8.5
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Understated peat offers no more than a smoky sprinkling on the juicy apple and vanilla.
Palate: Much fuller and fatter in the mouth with an immediate outbreak of spices. Impressively delicate.
Finish: Medium length and perhaps just a little thin. The coffee feature of old is less intense. Holds its age impressively.
Comment: A quite delicious version but not anything like the heavier, more complex 17 Years Old of old.
