Michael Jackson

Nose
Freshly chopped pine trees. Ferns. Forest floor.
Palate
Dryish. Vegetal. Ground coriander. Fiddlehead ferns. Rhubarb.
Finish
Sea tastes: sweetness and saltiness, with the latter overwhelmingly the winner. Long.
Comment
More wood-extract, or sherry, than I remember. I prefer a drier expression.

Dave Broom

Nose
Gutsy, citrus and oaky notes. Cracker bread/Ryvita. Water brings out orange and very malty qualities; some hessian. A touch metallic?
Palate
Medium sweet. There's good interplay between dry (wood/malt) and sweet fruits. Mid weight.
Finish
Mealy.
Comment
Surprisingly young for a 16 year-old.
