Michael Jackson

Nose
Polished oak.
Palate
Rich madeira cake.
Finish
Spicy. Vanilla pod. Toffee.
Comment
Big and robust but very drinkable and soothing.

Dave Broom

Nose
Into cooked/caramelised fruits, coffee grounds, hard toffee, aromatic. Rich and velvety. Oaky but with layers of sweetness underneath.
Palate
Powerful. Rich with cocoa solids, liquorice, chestnut (honey) and firm oak. Drier than the nose.
Finish
Long. Caramelised oak.
Comment
Bigger and therefore better balanced than the 20 Years Old. Still grippy though.
