Michael Jackson

Nose
Sweet. Marzipan. Notably nutty. Very heavy sherry (slightly tar-like, iron-ish). First-fill dry Oloroso? It tastes more like Pedro Ximinez.
Palate
Soft, smooth, juicy. Malty nuttiness. Liquorice.
Finish
A firm, assertive, hug. Enwrapping.
Comment
Well-rounded, but the balancing dryness can be slightly bitter.

Dave Broom

Nose
Mellow, sherry-dominant nose. Tobacco leaf, orange pekoe tea, walnut, caramelised fruit. Mint, leather, toffee and butter. In time it gets even sweeter.
Palate
Sweet and silky with well integrated sherry wood overlaying the creamy/minty character. Ripe and soft.
Finish
Light chocolate and some dried fruit.
Comment
Good for such a young Aberlour. Sherry in balance.
