Michael Jackson

Nose
Fruity and flowery. Roses. Fragrant. Hint of smoke.
Palate
Mouth-filling, tongue coating, soothing, soft. Marshmallow. Slightly burnt toffee.
Finish
Fruity again. Raspberries, prunes, raisins? Winey. Some balancing dryness.
Comment
Is the house character overwhelmed by the three woods (bourbon, sherry and port)? I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.

Jim Murray

Nose
A basket of fruits with apples and grape prominent here. Even some curious smokiness...
Palate
Seismic waves of spicy fruit with an earlier than usual surge of cocoa.
Finish
A slightly thinner, harder finale than the norm.
Comment
This whiskey benefits from warming in the hands. Opens like a flower as the temperature rises into something very beautiful, indeed.
