Michael Jackson

Nose
Very expressive. Notably herbal. Grassy.
Palate
Having flirted, plays hard-to-get. Interplay of teasing sweetness and stony dryness. Promises of orange blossom. Honey. Anise.
Finish
Slow seduction in the flower beds.
Comment
It's worth taking the trouble.

Dave Broom

Nose
Silky, elegant and rich: currant bushes, sweet fruits, honey, cream, leather, rich malt, chestnut. Water makes it smokier. Fruity with a savoury edge.
Palate
Lovely weight: honey, blackberry, cooked fruits, walnut, dried apricot. A mid-to back-palate whisky which is robust, yet silky; meaty but elegant. The word is complex.
Finish
Tingle of heathery smoke binding it together.
Comment
The most complex of the flight by some margin.
