Michael Jackson

80
Nose
Salty. Cookie-like maltiness. A hint of banana.
Palate
Medium-bodied. Firm. Oily. Some coconut. Some apricot-like sherry character. Winey, even.
Finish
Leafy. Vine leaves. Cedary, dry, slightly bitter. Some smokiness.
Comment
Robust, but lacks the delicacy and structure of the best Springbanks.

Dave Broom

82
Nose
A fascinating, oily mix of soot and perfume: smoke and lilies. White pepper, oak and sage leaves.
Palate
Rounded with bags of personality and citrus fruits giving it an acidic zestiness. Spice (ginger/nutmeg) and oak as well and an overall oily, briny quality.
Finish
Dies a little after the exciting nose.
Comment
Drink neat.
