Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Nice touch of sherry to round its big maltiness - and a subtle hint of peat.
Palate: Luscious, clean, maltiness and barley-sugar sweetness. Moving to drier maltiness and, again, gentle peating.
Finish: Firm, smooth. Orange zest. Cinnamon. Late, light ginger.
Comment: Anyone not quite understanding the term \"malt\" should try this whisky. All will then be clear.
7.8
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Seriously unimpressive: sub-standard sherry notes topped only by a hint of smoke. Pretty grim.
Palate: Silky but otherwise bland. Very little emerges beyond the flavourless sherry except a brief, malty, smoky peat.
Finish: Caramel and vanilla. Otherwise dead.
Comment: Zzzzzzzzzzz.
