Michael Jackson

Nose
More distillery character in that touch of smokiness. Slightly vegetal.
Palate
Creamier. Apricot. Seville orange peels. Orange-and-ginger marmalade. Very expressive.
Finish
Spicy. Dusty. Like powdered nutmeg or cinnamon.
Comment
The flavours hang together better in this version, and I favour it over the port finish, but by too narrow a margin to score.

Dave Broom

Nose
Full sherry notes: roasted almond/dry amontillado. Rich and generous with fruity malt behind smoky wood.
Palate
Nutty, raisined, sultana flavours dominate. Sweet and chewy yet nutty.
Finish
The sherry softens slightly.
Comment
Drier and nuttier than the port, but again the finish is in charge.
