Michael Jackson

Very light peat smoke, but also some sherryish sweetness.
Smooth. Waxy. Piney, honeyish. Developing sweet creaminess. Opens very slowly.
Salty, with a surprising sting.
It is good to have a more muscular Jura, but I find this a bit too smooth. I would prefer something less sophisticated and more sexy. Must be the size of those paps.

Dave Broom

Heathery with hints of hard Highland toffee, wet bracken, smoke, date, chocolate-covered raisins. Water brings polished oak, nuts and heather blossom.
Soft, with an immediate puff of heathery smoke playing alongside toffee, crisp malt. Good balance and weight.
Lightly smoky.
The smoke gives extra character to the often slightly rigid Jura style. Great price too!
