Michael Jackson

Nose
Soft, gentle, sooty smokiness.
Palate
Textured, lightly toffeeish. Fruity. Interplay of brown-sugar sweetness and tar-like dryness.
Finish
Peaty, leafy, reedy. A certain sandy grittiness.
Comment
Wood finishes are still fun and may recruit new enthusiasts for malt. Dawn, Dusk, Voyager...this is becoming confusing. Of those three (Port, Bordeaux and Port again), Dawn seems the lightest all-round.

Dave Broom

Nose
Perfumed and winey: lavender, peat smoke, red fruits, strawberry jam, rhubarb and custard sweeties. Water intensifies the perfume: sage, peat smoke, orange, drying seaweed, heather.
Palate
Mulled wine beside a peat fire. Hessian, clove, sour cherry.
Finish
A little hot. Sweet. Smoky.
Comment
Like sucking a wine gum in a kiln. A little too winey for me.
