Michael Jackson

Nose
Musty. Sweet-and-dry.
Palate
Chocolately. Coco beans. "Cream sherry." Also meaty yeast notes. Reminiscent of barley wine or Lambic beer.
Finish
Very vinous. Again, the wine dominates.
Comment
I am totally seduced by its eccentricity and intensity. Where's the whisky? who cares? Pour me another. Bring on the chicken mole.....

Dave Broom

Nose
Exotic. Damp straw, nut, malt, acacia. In time there's caramel, tarte tatin, dried pear, nuts.
Palate
Sweet, but with a dry, grippy, undertow. Good concentration: nuts, toffee. Firms towards the finish.
Finish
Where it happens: hazelnut, pears, dried fruits and nut bowl.
Comment
A new flavour and a valid one. Well handled. Just a little grippy for me.
