Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fruitcake. Faint burnt currants.
Palate: Cakey, sherryish, sultanas with a malty, grassy, sweetness.
Finish: Peatier than I remember but becomes rich and spicy.
Comment: Complex, beautifully rounded and soothing.
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: The sherry is not quite as clean as it might be: also cuts out the more intricate malt notes. Quite doughy.
Palate: Good bitter-sweet balance from the off but rather hot and spirity. Again some sherry, fruity notes but not quite as in harmony as you'd expect.
Finish: Very dry and slightly bitter. Too much vanilla.
Comment: Not a patch on the old style Lochnagar when the bourbon cask was king.
