Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Slight nutty sherry. Dried citrus skins. Sweet grass.
Palate: Orange zest, lemons, faint syrup. Cream. Honey.
Finish: Orange zest. Gently gingery balancing dryness.
Comment: The light touch of sherry helps bring out the soft, fruity, flavours.
8.5
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Sharp lemon drops are blunted by caramel but the fruity, lime-zest freshness is appealing and intense.
Palate: Immediate fruitiness; very chewy malty middle with some bitter oak. The caramel slowly dulls everything.
Finish: Again, the caramel dominates. Flat, uninteresting, lacks length and depth.
Comment: Starts brightly enough but the caramel character prevents the whisky taking off.
