Michael Jackson

Nose
Gently fruity, perfumy, smoky.
Palate
Light on the tongue. Flowery. Oat-like flavours. Some maltiness. Vanilla sweetness.
Finish
Light. A touch of spiciness.
Comment
The vinho verde colour suggests a very light whiskey, and this certainly is, in both body and flavour. This bottling seems markedly thinner than the last vintage I tasted.

Dave Broom

Nose
Attractive, obviously young but not immature. Grassy with a touch of muesli, sweet almonds and juicy malt. Sauvignon Blanc/green rhubarb ferment notes.
Palate
Sweet and fresh all the way through: peaches, blossom and clover. Light nutty malt mid-palate with that winery/grapey note at the back.
Finish
Peaches in syrup (en regalia?) then dry cereal.
Comment
Hugely drinkable. Young but sweetly vibrant.
