Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Pungent. Piney, tar-like, intensely smoky, earthy, darkly sherried.
Palate: Coconut oiliness. Resiny. Fruity and phenolic.
Finish: Oaky and very salty. Immensely powerful, tenacious.
Comment: Frighteningly good. Godzilla is alive and well and living in Campbeltown.
9.5
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: An extraordinarily delicate smokiness, boasting soft, plummy fruit and a gristy maltiness.
Palate: Bigger than the nose suggests: peat runs before everything else in between sweet maltiness.
Finish: Chewy, vanilla-rich, kippery, buttery, still gristy and a little young but wonderfully long.
Comment: A cask well worth keeping back to see in the new century. And, as a 9 Years Old, proves that youth can conquer over age. Spectacular.
