Michael Jackson

Nose
Fragrant. Menthol. Markedly vegetal. Vanilla pod. Creamy.
Palate
Firmer. Much bigger. Much more expressive. Sweeter. Leafy sweetness. Spring greens. Crushed almonds. Rooty, cedary.
Finish
Some peaty bitterness. Big. Long, warming.
Comment
The most vegetal and assertive of the three expressions. Lots of contribution from the wood.

Dave Broom

Nose
Darker in colour, some vanilla and a heavy floral note (bluebell). Light oaky notes, orange/lemon and some smoke.
Palate
Rounded and quite sweet to start then begins to dry in the centre. Good weight. Some oak.
Finish
Lightly smoky and herbal (dried thyme).
Comment
Dry, crisp and mature with more of a contribution from the cask (not OTT though).
