Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Strong sea aromas.
Palate: Salt. Ground white pepper sandy. Waterlogged driftwood. Sulphury notes.
Finish: Stinging.
Comment: Only 8 Years Old, but a seasoned sea-salt. A return to form for the independent youngster.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Furniture polish. Waxy and quite perfumed. Kumquat, honey, malt, bracken, tea and honey.
Palate: Soft, gentle and creamy. Light smoke. Floral with apricot jam and light fruit. Soft-centred sweetness.
Finish: Tickle of smoke. Fresh.
Comment: All you expect from this always classy performer.
