Michael Jackson

Nose
A hint of fruit (apricot?), then creamy, with some peaty dryness. Appetising. Fresh.
Palate
Lightly fudgy and nutty.
Finish
A late balancing dryness and a surprising surge of spiciness. Reminiscent of cinnamon, then gingery.
Comment
Approachable – even amiable – but with some substance. Wintery flavours that are warming without being challenging.

Dave Broom

Nose
Fruity and lightly honeyed. A mix of butterscotch, fruit scone, heather, hazelnut with a wisp of smoke. Slight greenish note.
Palate
Light to medium bodied that starts with spices and orange peel then some honeyed fruit and a little smoke.
Finish
Dry and biscuity.
Comment
Well-made, attractive. Lacks complexity but a decent dram.
