Michael Jackson

Nose
Orange zest. Very restrained.
Palate
Light. Silky. Scenty. Delicate. Orange junket or blancmange.
Finish
A hint of bitterness to provide a balancing dryness.
Comment
It is not a whisky, so it cannot be scored as one. In character, I would regard it as an aperitif liqueur, rather than an-after dinner drink. In a category of its own, it secures a high score.

Marcin Miller

Nose
Chocolate covered orange peel.
Palate
Luscious. Orange and cinnamon. Good weight of alcohol; strength disguised by attractive mouthfeel.
Finish
Luxuriant.
Comment
Very pretty. An unusual and interesting post-prandial option.
