Michael Jackson

Nose
Leather saddlery, tobacco.
Palate
Firm. Smooth. Rich. Very pronounced vanilla, and honey (promised on the neck label, I discover). Some Madeira-like wineyness, too.
Finish
Late tar-like smokyness. Gunsmoke?
Comment
The cowboy allusions on the neck-label suggest a rough, frontier whisky. Maybe this soothing spirit is just for urban cowboys. It has more of the blacktop than the Badlands.

Dave Broom

Nose
Feisty and intense with some citrus oil, Seville orange, banana, maple syrup, smoke and sagebrush fires.
Palate
Perfumed start: a whiff of dried lavender, singed orange peel, dusty spice cupboards.
Finish
A whipcracking lash.
Comment
Old-style, teeth-sucking stuff. If this was a singer it would be Merle Haggard. A great cocktail base.
