Michael Jackson

Nose
Smoky. Treacle toffee.
Palate
Chewy. Fruity. Cherries. Chocolatey.
Finish
Bitter chocolate. Concentrated. Intense.
Comment
I would love this whisky if it had a little less wood. I want to love it anyway, but in the end the wood defeats me.

Dave Broom

Nose
Powerful intense and resinous: treacle, raspberry, coffee. Light smoke giving a burnt note. Gutsy European oak in spades.
Palate
Rich and mouthfilling, reminiscent of Brandy de Jerez: stewed plum, leather, PX, burnt raisins. Dry and densely wooded.
Finish
Fruit cake.
Comment
A fine example of European oak in action.
