Michael Jackson

Nose
Honeyed. Floral. Herbal. Full of subtleties.
Palate
Lightly syrupy. Sweet. Delivers what the bouquet promised.
Finish
Starts gently dry, but quickly soars to spicy heights.
Comment
Very accessible, and not given to grandiosity, but it's one of the Speyside greats. Good with some desserts. Try it with cassata.

Dave Broom

Nose
Complex, rich mix of flowers, fruit (dried and caramelised), plum, baked apple, currant, honey, roast chestnut, meat and toffee. Phew.
Palate
A soft start, then dark fruits mixed with light honey and cooked peach. A rich, elegant, silky texture that fills the mouth. Highly complex.
Finish
Soft with a gentle hint of smoke.
Comment
Balances richness and fragrance superbly.
