Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Pine needles, Badedas bath, light citrus oil/dried tangerine peel, some bitter herbs/bark, light vanilla. Settles down into butterscotch, pine wood mulch. Seems fragile. Raspberry leaf. Layered. In time fruit cake, raisin, light peat.
Palate: Surprisingly soft, quite fragile with a lacy feel. Flavours shift into peppermint. Complex.
Finish: Firm becoming dry.
Comment: A venerable and complex beast that's just holding on. Don't add water.
8.5
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Evokes grand houses, polished oak and elegant living.
Palate: Buttery, toasty. Slight burnt toast. Lime marmalade. A touch of ginger.
Finish: Bittersweet. A hint of black coffee.
Comment: Classic Speyside. Confident. Aristocratic.
