Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Fruity, with apples and fresh peaches. Something vaguely minty, like Mojo sweets or mint toffees. Grassy, with vanilla in the background too.
Palate: Was expecting more sweetness, but there is a balancing bitterness along with the toffee, mint and grass.
Finish: Brown toast and biscuits.
Comment: A typical and classic aged Speyside, which still has balance between spirit and wood.

Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Has to be coaxed out, but eventually ripe red apples, followed by gentle red fruit tartness.
Palate: Assaults the palate. Creamy but bitter. Everton mints. Sweeter with water. Popcorn?
Finish: Oily, alcoholic, with fennel or even aniseed notes. Slightly phenolic with water.
Comment: A reticent nose is completely eclipsed by a huge but uncomplicated palate. Benefits greatly from water.
