Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fruity and flowery. Roses. Flagrant. Hint of smoke.
Palate: Mouth-filling, tongue coating, soothing, soft, Marshmallow. Slightly burnt toffee.
Finish: Fruity again. Raspberries, prunes, raisins? Winey. Some balancing dryness.
Comment: Is the house character overwhelmed by the three woods (bourbon, sherry and port)? I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: A basket of fruits with apple and grape prominent here. Even some curious smokiness.
Palate: Seismic waves of spicy fruit with an earlier than usual surge of cocoa.
Finish: A slightly thinner, harder finale than the norm.
Comment: This whisky benefits from warming in the hands. Opens like a flower as the temperature rises into something very beautiful, indeed.
