Michael Jackson

Nose
Fragrant. Fruity. Leafy. Herbal. Peppery. Charred oak.
Palate
Nutty. Lightly toffeeish. Minty. Spicey. Dried fruits. Melon dusted with ginger.
Finish
Lively, refreshing.
Comment
A trifle sophisticated for my tastes, but a very fine rye whiskey.

Dave Broom

Nose
Mature and rich: caramel, dried fruit, maraschino, vin santo, coffee grounds, tobacco with allspice, cinnamon and lemon. A little woody?
Palate
Round and rich to start, then spicy rye takes over. Muscular stuff, though a little tannic, making it slightly bitter rather than sour.
Finish
Earth, red fruit, coconut.
Comment
Robust, extra mature stuff but maybe the wood has the upper hand.
