Michael Jackson

Nose
Earthy. Forest floor, resiny, sweet, malty. Cereal grain, becoming nuttier and sweeter.
Palate
Starts with dessert apples, moving to raspberry.
Finish
This is where the Port finally comes through, and does so very assertively. "Better late than never, " it seems to say.
Comment
Refreshing, appetising.

Dave Broom

Nose
An onion skin colour. Sweet, floral notes: apple purée, raspberryade, cherry, jam. Becomes firmer with water.
Palate
A mix of light dry maltiness alongside sloe, strawberry. Very sweet. Like wine and whisky shaken together.
Finish
Somehow sticky but thin.
Comment
A cocktail rather than a finish.
