Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Lovely balance of sherry, malt and peat.
Palate: Fruitcake, ginger cake, spiced bread. Sambuca.
Finish: Luscious and smoky.
Comment: Too firm and well proportioned to be deemed voluptuous - but it's a delightfully close call.
7.5
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Toffee apples and Blue Mountain coffee: clean and fruit cake rich, complete with toasted almonds. An aroma worth passing a few malts for.
Palate: Drier than the nose suggests, but no less rich. Quite fat and fudgy, though, with a very malty middle despite the spicy fruit.
Finish: Not as long as some previous renditions, but continues the toffee-apple theme.
Comment: A quality malt that restores the faith.
