Michael Jackson

Nose
Acetic. Coffee icing. Then creamy toffee, caramel notes combining with pear drops remind me of Elastoplast. Herbal.
Palate
Cereal grains. Newsprint. Faintly smoky. Creamy toffee and vanilla develop with water.
Finish
Oily, burnt croissant. Wood ash.
Comment
A number of surprising, and perhaps contradictory, characteristics that actually come together quite nicely in the end.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Malt loaf, dark chocolate sauce, vanilla, warm tar and peat. With water more eucalyptus/tea tree, and Limoncello.
Palate
Like crunching peated barley malt. Porridge and peat, with lemon rind.
Finish
More youthful peatiness.
Comment
I was reminded of the time I met a German loon who claimed to sprinkle heavily peated barley on his muesli. This is 30ppm Ready Brek.
