Michael Jackson

Nose
Appetising citrus (tangerine?).
Palate
Malty, textured. Crunchie bars. Cinder toffee. Softening to marshmallow. Cream. Strawberries.
Finish
A sprinkling of lemon juice.
Comment
The orangey colour suggests some sherry. Nikka's Sendai distillery has in this instance produced a nuttier, maltier style of whisky than Yoichi.

Dave Broom

Nose
Intense, aromatic, rich yet dry: resin, oil, dried fruit, plum pudding, coffee. In time, mushroom, damp earth.
Palate
Sherried/walnut flavours, resinous. Chocolate. The wood hits half way through but there's just enough sweet weight to carry.
Finish
Rich.
Comment
An intriguing mix of sweet wood, crisp malt and toasted nuttiness.
