Michael Jackson The Special Blend
Tasted as part of Girl Whisky's Mystery Whisky Tasting Adventure this was one of three whiskies tasted, being the Michael Jackson Special Blend.
A blend made up using some of the sample bottles from Michael Jackson's collection. A proportion of the profits raised from this bottle went to The Parkinson's Disease Society.
gentle wafts of peat smoke, a little prickly on the nose so i'll say a higher ABV, theres a bit of fruityness underlying this, touches of honey and seville oranges / Tangerines. After a while in the glass a bit more of a nutty, acorn, woodyness comes through also.
quite woody, nutty, maybe a touch of acorns, there's sweetness too though more of the tangerines, a touch of acetone too and i still get a tinge of peat smoke.
nice length quite tingly
