Michael Jackson

Nose
Still decidedly orangey, but much more restrained. Very nutty and malty. A touch of sherry and oak.
Palate
Gentle. Lightly oily. Orangey, perfumy. Creamy, oaty, malty notes. Well rounded.
Finish
Firm but light. Flowery. Heathery. Hint of peat.
Comment
More subtlety sophistication and elegance than the Platinum.

Dave Broom

Nose
An unreduced nose of smoked cheese, toasty wood, rich fruits, rubber and crème brûlée. With water added: honey, fresh sawdust and bran.
Palate
Sweet, concentrated red fruits along with toffee, caramelised fruit and a soft grainy mid-palate.
Finish
Clean and dry with a hint of lemon.
Comment
A soft, gentle, labrador of a dram.
