Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Polished oak.
Palate: Malty. Darjeeling tea. Leafy. Tobacco.
Finish: Liquorice. Cough sweets. Assertive spiciness.
Comment: A Speysider with a rich chestnut colour, plenty of aroma and lots of flavour. Makes a change from the dumbed-down and the terminally delicate.
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Quite deep with oxidised notes. Dark chocolate, prune, black fruits, black cherry, walnut, polished leather, autumn earth.
Palate: Medium-bodied. Soft start but grips quite early showing real figgy age. Tannins begin to clamp down.
Finish: Dry, tannic.
Comment: Fascinating, but the oak is having the greater say.
