Michael Jackson

Nose
Very faint seaweed. Estery. Fruity.
Palate
Very light-bodied, but with interesting flavours. Coconut. Pistachio nuts. Rosewater.
Finish
Hessian, cedar and oak. Salt, very definitely. Seems to lift in the finish.
Comment
The flavours are tightly combined. I imagine exploring them late at night in a vaguely disreputable bar in the tropics. Perhaps it's the name.

Paul Pacult

Nose
Intensely grainy and cereal sweet, with background touches of toasted almond and nougat. The aroma is vivacious at first, then it fades to obscurity with frightening velocity.
Palate
Ethereal to light-bodied. Pleasant, if one-dimensional on the tongue, showing mild, grain mash, manufactured, sweet flavour notes of light toffee and cane sugar.
Finish
Thin. Highland Spring mineral water shows more depth of character.
Comment
I find it too manipulated and, as a result, painfully bland. A cardboard cut-out.
