Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Vegetal peatiness, but hardly a monstrous note.
Palate: Crisp, clean, peaty dryness. Develops some medicinal notes.
Finish: Bittersweet.
Comment: A monster? As compared to earlier creations from the same house, but don't expect mass hysteria on Park Avenue.
8.3
Taster   Marcin Miller
Nose: Vanilla, cream, smoke. Very intriguing. Draws you in.
Palate: Peat, smoke. Burning peat fires.
Finish: Long but relatively austere.
Comment: More dour than I was expecting but this whisky will have many devoted adherents. Another winner from Compass Box.
