Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Rich. Maple syrup, spices and mustard. Can a whisky have a hint of acidity on the nose? Yes, but rather the acidity of a Lenny Bruce rather than of vinegar.
Palate: Marijuana. Big interplay of smoky dryness, spicy heat and sweetly malty, creamy vanilla.
Finish: Rounded with raisiny sherry. At length, mellow.
Comment: Is Black Label a great whisky? Was Dizzy Gillespie a great musician?
Taster   Paul Pacult
Nose: The salty thumbprint of Talisker is identifiable from the moment of pouring. Mature, moderately oaked and oily in a nutty manner. A lovely and textured bouquet.
Palate: Medium-to-full bodied. Leaps far past the Red Label in terms of grip on the tongue as grainy flavours start out dry at entry, then go pedal-to-the-metal at mid-palate with tangy, vivid tastes of peat, tobacco leaf, malt, and ripe apple.
Finish: The malt becomes sweet and zesty in the aftertaste.
Comment: A blend that I like more every time I evaluate it.
