Michael Jackson

Nose
Very light peat smoke, but also some sherryish sweetness.
Palate
Smooth. Waxy. Piney, honeyish. Developing sweet creaminess. Opens very slowly.
Finish
Salty, with a surprising sting.
Comment
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

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