Michael Jackson

Nose
Fruity, sweet, sticky. Prunes in a pie?
Palate
Hard sponge cake, soaked in syrup. Reminded me of the Turkish cake called Kateife.
Finish
Nutty. Walnuts, mint toffee.
Comment
Still sweet, but much more rounded. Real depth of flavour, tastes more like Armagnac than whisky. I would like to try it with pecan pie.

Dave Broom

Nose
Ripe and perfumed: black fruit, wild flowers, apple, candle wax, cereal/hay loft, dry oak. Sweetens with water.
Palate
Sweet with a silky feel. Black fruit in centre alongside crisp malt. Decent grip.
Finish
Sweet fruits then dry oak.
Comment
The best balanced of the three.
