Michael Jackson

Nose
Beeswax. Flowery.
Palate
Orange flower water. Jaffa Cakes. Good malt background.
Finish
Cocoa powder.
Comment
A nostalgic reminder of the Lomond still, though I had forgotten it could produce such sweet whisky.

Dave Broom

Nose
Fragrant to start, then becomes increasingly oily and rich: cloutie dumpling, cooked fruits, spices, syrup; then saddle soap, coffee, nut and light camphor.
Palate
Generous, thick and smooth with an oily feel and overall sweetness. Golden syrup.
Finish
Nutty and oily. Empire biscuits, almond.
Comment
It ain't subtle, but it's well worth trying.
