Michael Jackson

Nose
Malty, very scented, cake-like. Linseed.
Palate
Big. Notably firm-bodied. Malty. Cereal grains. Toasted sesame seeds. Demerara sugar and raisins. Honey. There even seems to be a hint of chilli in there somewhere.
Finish
Soothing. Long. Developing slight lemon grass and peatiness.
Comment
If you want to taste barley in a blend, look no further than this muscular heavyweight.

Dave Broom

Nose
Well-balanced nose with sherried notes of orange, nutmeg, wine gums and vanilla. Water introduces a heathery/earthy smoke note.
Palate
Chewy. It's well balanced and juicy but with little jabs of citrus to keep you interested.
Finish
Long and mellow, starts cakey then comes pepper.
Comment
A fine, well-weighted pretty lush blend.
