Michael Jackson

Somewhat dry and dusty at first, it eventually permits me some sharp green fruits (gooseberries?) with an almost candyfloss-like top note. Then furniture polish? Beeswax? Resin?
Medium. Balanced. Some burnt pastry. Vanilla? Young oak. A hint of menthol.
Surprisingly soft with some green, vegetal notes.
A curious whisky. Not sure where it's coming from, or going to.

Dave Broom

Light and young. Floral (gladioli) and a hint of cereal with a nodule of sweetness. Cooking marmalade, citrus peels, flour.
Liquorous. Sweet and slightly dusty (sawdust and malt). Raisins, coconut, muesli then a soft floral quality. Smooth and rounded, poached fruits to finish.
Charred. Short.
Water splits it. Oak not quite integrated. A good session dram.
