Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Peat, then flowery, with cinnamon and apples.
Palate: Firmly malty. Nutty. Grassy. Herbal.
Finish: Dry. Peaty and warming.
Comment: Very much the house style. Has not gained, or lost, much by such a long maturation.
7.5
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: A tale of an out-of-control wash still and bars of soap. Some honey still filters through. Amazing!
Palate: The oak takes command and though the vanilla-honey-malt combination tries to hold sway the balance has been lost a little.
Finish: Waxed honey, slightly strained oak but ultimately very soapy.
Comment: The result of a stillman's very worst nightmare.
