Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Sugared almonds. Fudge. Chocolates in a box.
Palate: Honeyed dryness. Dark liquid honey. Flavours gradually emerging. Restrained citrus, orange, then lemon.
Finish: Mixed spices. Slight ginger.
Comment: Lots of flavour but restrained and well balanced. Very confident. If there is a Speyside style, surely this is it.
8.5
Taster   Ian Wisniewski
Nose: Spicy, fruity overture, then caramel sauce and fruit syrup, with fudge and butterscotch.
Palate: Smooth, mellow, subtle baked apples with spicy gingerbread, citrus, pear drops, some underlying dry oakyness and clove.
Finish: Subtle poached fruit sweetness and dry, spicy oak.
Comment: Fruit-driven with spice and oak extending the spectrum and adding gravitas.
