Michael Jackson

Nose
Aromatic. Cedary. Orange zest. Intensely fruity. Slightly sharp at the back of the nose.
Palate
Orange Angel Delight. Caramel. Toffee. Wafers. Dry oiliness.
Finish
Orange peels. Bitter orange. Ginger marmalade. Late, lively, surge of spiciness.
Comment
Some interesting flavours, with lots of dimensions, but no balance or structure. I'm not wild about Angel Delight.

Dave Broom

Nose
Full-on, rich sweet nose: candy, caramelised oak, cinnamon cooked in butter, hot cross buns and honey cakes.
Palate
Big, chewy and sweet with a fresh oily zap on the back palate stopping it from becoming too cloying.
Finish
Long, slightly hot.
Comment
Big and sweet. Scale down the sweet vermouth when making your Manhattan.
