Michael Jackson

Nose
Warm, welcoming, appetising. The bakery aromas of Sunday brunch.
Palate
Pancakes. Cornbread. Buttered corn. Peach cobbler. Pecan pie. Pints of vanilla ice cream with butterscotch sauce, garnished with sprigs of fresh mint.
Finish
A hint of soft, leafy, balancing dryness.
Comment
At an ‘all you can eat' buffet in Chicago, a woman piling her plate said to me: “isn't this sinful?” This is temptation in a bottle.

Dave Broom

Nose
The first impression is butter, then fresh baking, toasted crumpet followed by light red fruit (cherry) and allspice. Gentle, with a tricksy quality, lemon meringue lifted by a subtle spiciness. Very clean and well defined.
Palate
Gentle then a tingle of fresh planed oak. Reminiscent of melted rock candy with a hint of toffee and a menthol note. Very fine.
Finish
Long, spicy.
Comment
A stunning glass, gentle yet exotic.
