Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: 'Green' aromas. The forest floor.
Palate: Oily. Nutty. Creamy flavours. Sweet.
Finish: Firm. Robustly spicy. Long.
Comment: One of Speyside's secret delights. But a hard whisky to know. Big flavours, but tightly combined and unyielding.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Rich, oily with a meaty edge. Dubbin. Smoke, fruit and nut and surprisingly fragrant top notes.
Palate: Oily rather than silky texture: then a nutty smoky bite and citrus. A full-blooded, mouth-coating experience, and for all its robust, meaty nature, quite gentle.
Finish: Long. Meaty.
Comment: Soft yet savoury. Mortlach's little brother and a forgotten classic.
7.8
