Michael Jackson

Nose
Very distinctively nutty, with a touch of sherry.
Palate
Nutty maltiness. Unusually textured. Nougat-like. A hint of cherries. Beautifully balanced.
Finish
Long. Gentle but firm. Subtle spiciness. Nutmeg? Cinnamon?
Comment
Sophisticated but very approachable.

Dave Broom

Nose
Quite light, slightly immature nose. There's (green) melon balls, ginger, a hint of cream, sultana and sherry.
Palate
The fruit cake/sherry begins to emerge but it's a bit thin and simple.
Finish
Slightly bitter.
Comment
Lacks integration with the wood. Like some middle-weight malts, it needs time to reach full maturity.
