Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Hints of winey fruit.
Palate: Hazelnuts. Good flavour development. Nutty, marshmallow, toffee, cookie-like maltiness.
Finish: A hint of coconut. Elusive spiciness (nutmeg perhaps?).
Comment: The delicacy of the Glen Grant survives here.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Perfumed (almost artificially so): pot pourri, strawberry chews. Flattens with water, also rings out a cereal character.
Palate: Dry, almost papery feel, sweetened by the berries in the middle of the palate.
Finish: Sweet and winey.
Comment: The port is trying to give this some life, but ends up dominating.
