Michael Jackson

Nose
Biscuity. Shortbread. Dundee cake. Cellar.
Palate
Buttery and nutty. Crushed apples, cider. Vanilla. A sweet note of peach marmalade.
Finish
Too much softness. Gentle spiciness.
Comment
Not easy to evaluate what sauternes casks have brought in. An extra sweetness maybe but no particular sauternes aromas. Appreciable bottling strength.

Dave Broom

Nose
Thick, creamy yet malty nose with concentrated fruits: apricot, orange peel, tarte tatin, vanilla pod.
Palate
Real presence in the mouth. Ripe and well-rounded with banana/orange.
Finish
Rich, with woody notes.
Comment
This works as a finish. The slight woodiness just knocks it down a mark or two-and it doesn't like water.
