Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Syrupy. Flowering currant. Apricot. Lemon. Sweet and dry. Spicy.
Palate: Firm but creamy. Honeyed.
Finish: Sweet grass. Some peatiness and late sappy oak.
Comment: Despite a relatively full colour, suggesting plenty of sherry, the Macallan flavours shine through. The driest of these bottlings.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Juicy: madeira cake, white peach, currant, cocoa, brazil nut - all with a turfy/smoky, pipe tobacco/resin/pitch undertow.
Palate: Medium dry yet with a pleasant oiliness.
Finish: Good length with hints of citrus, plump sultanas and smoke.
Comment: The palo cortado of the range.
