Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Outwardly flattish, but time and patience reveals life beyond the sherry-hints of cherry and oak.
Palate: Mouth-filling and chewy. Lots of cream toffee. All the time there's a delicate, malty spice buzz.
Finish: Very long and still milky, silky toffee with malt and vanilla arriving. A wave or two of sweet liquorice adds further richness.
Comment: Genuinely classy stuff from the 24 carat jewel in JBB's Scottish crown.
8.5
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Beautiful balance of tempting aromas. Gently fragrant peat-smoke. Orange marmalade, malt and sherry.
Palate: Orange. Cream. Distinct aniseed. Honey. A very complex malt, with wonderfully combined flavours.
Finish: Almost chewy. Faint citrus zest. Smoky dryness. The faintest hint of the sea.
Comment: Said to be married in sherry butts. In this instance, marriage certainly works.
