Michael Jackson The Special Blend Review

Michael Jacksons 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.

Tasting Notes & Details


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
