  1. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A bold, intense and very complex dram with an amazing alteration of
    sweet and bitter flavours. Luckily, the sweetness is the winner of these
    two opponents in this tribute valinch. I think, Michael Jackson would
    have liked this one as well.

    • Nose
      Fruity with red currant, strawberry, gooseberry, and slightly sour red
      grapes as well. Sweet flavours of dessert wine along with brown sugar,
      hints of toffee and gentle oaky spice with a whiff of earthy/rubbery
      tones.
    • Taste
      Very sweet at the beginning with lots of red fruits, strawberries and
      lingering vanilla. Suddenly a boost of sour red currant and a hint of
      sulphur is coming through just for a second or two, before the sweet
      fruitiness takes the upper hand again, along with walnuts and gentle
      toffee. An amazing alteration of flavours on the palate.
    • Finish
      Pretty long and warming. Sweet with lingering toffee and vanilla. Coats
      your mouth for hours without any disruptive bitter flavours. An
      excellent and very enjoyable mouthfeel.

      WITH WATER: Oh boy, this is
      much more vibrant with prickling spice! There is this bitterness of red
      grapes right at the beginning before the sweetness takes over again.
      Rich and sweet with a long finish.

    Very fitting bottle for the occasion. A rather elegant old style Laddie with thankfully a pleasantt Syrah taste too it. RIP MJ.
