Michael Jackson

Nose
Fresh attack, with a barrel of tar and punches of peat, sulphur and salt. The victim, enjoying being a masochist, is then soothed with beeswax.
Palate
Rich and extremely sweet, then smoky becoming medicinal and eventually seaweedy.
Finish
Pepper, salt, sand.
Comment
What it loses in character it gains in a different dimension of distinctiveness.

Doug McIvor

Nose
Deep fragrant sherry slightly burnt and winey notes, followed by salt and seaweed.
Palate
Lightness subsides to reveal a chewy, dancingly oily body which resurges before releasing the sooty medicinal saviours.
Finish
Long, smoky, medicinal, smoky, salty, smoky.
Comment
A more lingering, classic Lagavulin with some of the corners knocked off and some subtle depths added.
