Michael Jackson

Nose
Quick spiciness, then linseed and leather. Cedar. Body very rich for a grain whisky.
Palate
Smooth. Sweetish. Emphatic, lingering, milk chocolate. Developing a gentle, toasted-almond, dryness.
Finish
Firm. Soothing.
Comment
I've always had a soft spot for this distillery's Black Barrel, and I like this version even more. Not very complex – but it is a grain whisky.

Dave Broom

Nose
Great legs. Intense and quite oily, this marries sweet and savoury beautifully. Spice galore. with soft caramelised fruit, plum/prune and treacle.
Palate
Elegant and smooth. A woody start then a luscious, spicy mid-palate like cinnamon buns slathered with butter.
Finish
Clove, all spice, cinnamon. Spicy!
Comment
Superb. Let's have more quality grain like this.
