Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fresh sea smells. A walk in the dunes.
Palate: Fresh, creamy. Reminded me of a mustardy hollandaise sauce (perhaps served with samphire).
Finish: Fruity, mustardy, dry.
Comment: Not one of the peaty vintages, and would have benefited from some other element to lift the creaminess.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: A very fruity nose: tangerine peel, marmalade, tinned peaches, slightly waxy.
Palate: Best drunk neat. A gentle, quite sweet palate. There's a little woodiness, but the main effect is of ripe sweet fruit.
Finish: A hint of smoke.
Comment: Gentle and well-balanced.
