Michael Jackson

Nose
Cleanly oaky. Dessert apples. Toast. A hint of char.
Palate
Big, smooth, sweet.
Finish
Crisp.
Comment
An attractive, tawny, colour and a good, straight-ahead, whiskey. Could be more complex at ten years. Ideal with a Texas barbecue?

Dave Broom

Nose
Attractive, soft nose. Nutty (hazelnut, peanut brittle) with some oak tones. In time, liquorice, cream toffee, walnut, coffee bean, smoke/soot.
Palate
Soft fruits: peaches in cream with a little wood towards the back.
Finish
A little short and dry.
Comment
Well made and pretty punchy, but maybe just a little too dry.
