Michael Jackson

Nose
Warm. Nutty. Marzipan. Pistachios. Appetising.
Palate
Leafy. Spicy. Rosewater. Garden mint.
Finish
Dry. Drying on the tongue, Coriander. Slightly bitter. Slightly sharp.
Comment
An unusually dry expression of Bushmills. Complex. Austere. Bushmills needs a touch of sherry sweetness.

Dave Broom

Nose
Big and sweet with layers of fruit: butterscotch, cinnamon, citrus peels. With water, more spice, ripe oranges and a clover-like grassy/malty note.
Palate
Medium-bodied. Spices burst in the mouth. Masses of US oak, but it's balanced with gentle, soft maltiness. Explosive, sweet, delicious.
Finish
Malty.
Comment
Who said this was an insubstantial malt?
