Michael Jackson

Nose
Herbal. Fruity.
Palate
Intensely sweet. Creamy-tasting. Ice-cream (or perhaps the Indian equivalent, kulfi).
Finish
Lively. Zesty lemon peel. Candied angelica. Cilantro.
Comment
Richer and more expressive than any version I have tasted previously. Extraordinary sweetness.

Dave Broom

Nose
Like an Italian delicatessen: dry and slightly dusty with hints of spice, coffee, bran, vanilla pod and nut.
Palate
Sweeter than the nose suggests. Estery and floral with sweet grass.
Finish
Short and a little dry.
Comment
Simple, pleasant but a little one-dimensional.
