Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Freshly aromatic: grassy, spicy and lemongrassy.
Palate: Soft, spicy: cinnamon and, ginger. Beautiful balance of sweetness and dryness.
Finish: Fragrant spicy dryness.
Comment: I always enjoy this whisky, even though it is not the most typical of Lowlanders.
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Thin and spirity. Exceptionally malty and reminiscent of boiled barley-sugar candy.
Palate: Sweet, grassy-sharp and mouthwatering. Dominant malt, a hint of banana and custard.
Finish: Intense vanilla and caramel with rich oaky tones and a delicate hint of smoke. Slightly bitter at finish.
Comment: One of the better samples I've tasted recently. This malt can be temperamental. Delightfully intense but a lack of complexity through the middle disappoints.
