Michael Jackson

Nose
Very aromatic. Flowery. Nuts. Marzipan.
Palate
Light-bodied but very fruity indeed. Reminiscent of fruitcake with candied orange peels.
Finish
Light, clean. Vanilla pods.
Comment
Easy drinking, but worth more than a moment's thought.

Dave Broom

Nose
Rich and deep. Leather armchairs, walnut, dark fruit and tobacco. Oaky as it opens.
Palate
Big and thick. Starts sweetly with a gingery lift. Great balance between old scuffed leather, nutty toffee and spicy rye.
Finish
Long if a little woody.
Comment
A great old-style sippin' bourbon and a great base for an Old Fashioned.
