Michael Jackson

Nose
Sweet, fresh. Spearmint. Allspice.
Palate
Very clean malty sweetness. Soft, light, syrupy. Clean citrus flavour. Seems at first like candied fruits, then becomes more ethereal. Orange flower water?
Finish
Delicately dry. Slightly sharp.
Comment
Very different in style. Liqueur-ish.

Jim Murray

Nose
A stunning herbal start blossoms into a ginger-honey sweetness.
Palate
A fresh and clean start allows the corn to develop beautifully before the rye takes hold.
Finish
Medium length only, quality outstanding with fresh rye bringing the curtain down.
Comment
Celebrates the part the rye and malt notes can play against the more neutral background of corn. Almost too complex to be true.
