Michael Jackson

Nose
Linen. Lemon grass. Gorse. Coconut. Fruity.
Palate
Grassy. Spicy. Peppery. Drying on the tongue.
Finish
Medicinal. Slightly astringent.
Comment
A distinctive malt, but now slightly past its best.

Dave Broom

Nose
On the edgy side of fragrant: sweet apple, green pear, quince. With water becomes more like a freshly peeled apple.
Palate
Another light and fresh dram. Orange Spangles, very lively, light fruits Good balance and real charm.
Finish
Odd fellows (that's the sweet, not the staff of RMW...then again...).
Comment
Not the most complex, but a bloody good drink.
