Michael Jackson

Nose
Sea air and smokiness – evocative sootiness.
Palate
Silky. The touch of fruitiness, usually reminiscent of lemons, is sweeter, with a momentary suggestion of cherries. The flavours become almondy and walnut-like, then rooty and peppery.
Finish
Long, haughty.
Comment
Lots of flavour development, complexity and refinement. Very elegant, but where is the clamour of battle?

Dave Broom

Nose
Gentle and complex: orange/marmalade, sponge cake with pink icing, calfskin leather, angelica and smoke.
Palate
Soft and fragrant, light leathery notes then a smoky bonfire.
Finish
Light medicinal (Savlon/Germolene) then smoke.
Comment
Mellower than you'd expect but beautifully balanced.
