Michael Jackson

Nose
Perfumy maltiness. Fragrant smoke. What the nose promises, the palate delivers.
Palate
Silky. Very full flavours, but very light on their feet. It is the interplay and dexterity that captivates. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers? Billie Holiday and Lester Young?
Finish
Dry, oaky, more-ish.
Comment
A work of craftsmanship, elegance and its own style.

Dave Broom

Nose
Slightly shy to start. Subtle notes of dried mushroom (cep), casks, dried flowers, graphite, bitter orange, tea caddy tobacco leaf. Ever-changing and mature.
Palate
Dry and elegant. Seems fragile and old but with real character, then a startling orange lift and a tickle of smoke.
Finish
Dried peels and nuts.
Comment
Fragile but fascinating.
