Michael Jackson

Nose
Flapjack made with treacle. French toast dusted with cinnamon. Ginger. Clean, appetising.
Palate
Dusty. Spicy, then dark chocolate. Developing white chocolate. Vanilla ice-cream. Rum and raisin.
Finish
Crisp. Belgian wafers.
Comment
Luxurious and sweet, but background is gently dry. Deftly balanced and sophisticated, as ever.

Dave Broom

Nose
Great charm and complexity: apple, malt, flowers, bracken, spice, sawn oak, dunnage. More sweet oak with water. Sophisticated stuff.
Palate
Nutty to start, then bursts into life with chocolate, cut flowers, cinnamon and mandarin.
Finish
Crisp, biscuity.
Comment
All very precise with a polite procession of flavours. "No please, you go first. " "Why thank you old boy. "
