Michael Jackson

Nose
Cedary. Faint hint of peat.
Palate
Orange essence, then anise.
Finish
Toasted oak. Slightly sappy. Warming. Rather astringent.
Comment
More complex than the younger vintage.

Dave Broom

Nose
Mossy and nutty (pecan) with soft fruits and some smoke. Slightly hard with water: tea leaves, wholemeal toast, a spicy tobacco note. A clean, quite light spirit.
Palate
Spicy and sweetly concentrated: pecan pie, ripe fruits.
Finish
Hint of smoke.
Comment
Good weight, wood is beginning to show.
