Michael Jackson

Nose
Soft, nutty (walnuts). Rich, spicy.
Palate
Smooth, cream, rounded. Bittersweet chocolate.
Finish
Black chocolate. Long.
Comment
The richest-tasting Canadian whisky I have tasted. Wins points for luxury.

Dave Broom

Nose
A sweetly perfumed nose: all coffee bean, chocolate and coconut: like Bounty bar and Milky Way smooshed together along with honey/vanilla, smoky wood and winey notes: dried apricot, soaked raisins.
Palate
Silky texture which grips nicely mid-palate. Flavours of honey, violet, spices, soft black fruits.
Finish
Spicy with little oak.
Comment
Good balance with lots of extractive flavours. Oscar Peterson.
