Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: A razor-sharp spiciness lances through demerara sweetness and rich peat. Absolutely magnificent.
Palate: The enormous build up of spice adds to the multi-layered peat. The sweetness is almost like freshly crushed grist. Wave upon wave, layer upon layer of complexity.
Finish: Massively warming and still spicy. The peat lingers while the spice bristles.
Comment: A dram to be savoured and celebrated.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Wonderful aroma. Pungent, smoke-accented, rounded.
Palate: Full maltiness, slightly syrupy, with sourness and a very big pepperiness developing.
Finish: Very peppery, huge, long.
Comment: Always a classic, though I still miss the 8 Years Old.
