Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Lemon grass. Banana leaves. Coconut ice-cream.
Palate: Big flavours. Sweet, then vegetal, then creamy, then hot. A suggestion of chilli peppers.
Finish: Stinging. Bring on the Thai food.
Comment: Astonishingly full in both body and flavour for a grain whisky.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Very soft and sweet. Some tinned pineapple, then menthol. With water there's banana, tropical fruit (passion fruit) and pear. High-toned and sweet.
Palate: Tightly focussed on to the front and centre of the palate. Menthol returns along with high citrus tones. Plenty of vanilla.
Finish: Clean and short.
Comment: Light and smooth and balanced. A crowd pleaser.
