Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Lychees and sweet white grape.
Palate: Immediately sweet with a slow implosion of peat that seems to arise from nowhere.
Finish: Long, lingering, massive malt frame.
Comment: Sheer brilliance. An absolute must for anyone who regards himself a whisky connoisseur.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Polished oak, then smoky.
Palate: Lots of malt. Chewy, creamy, oily.
Finish: More crisply peaty.
Comment: Creamier than the 10 Years Old, but that softens the peatiness. Between these two, I preferred the peatier ten.
