Michael Jackson

Nose
Malty. Treacle toffee. Appetising, juicy, sherryish, oak. Poire Williams.
Palate
Layers of malty, nutty, flavours.
Finish
Intense raisiny sweetness, then drying on the tongue, with a suggestion of char. A hint of cough sweets.
Comment
Lovely chestnut colour. Soothing. After dinner and in front of a log fire. A touch woody, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Dave Broom

Nose
Aged sherry (dry Oloroso) walnut, chicory, fig rolls, chocolate, wrinkly Cox's, tarragon. Water makes it smokier/meatier, leather, raisin, date and coal smoke.
Palate
Soft yet savoury: chocolate with a whiff of coal smoke, coffee cake.
Finish
Big soft and gentle. Liquorice and soot.
Comment
A big gentle well-balanced dram. Deep and old.
