Michael Jackson

Nose
Forest floor. Piney, resiny, tar-like.
Palate
Sweetish, hesitant, then really late surge of cooked fruit. Peach cobbler.
Finish
Slightly clovey. Peppery. Long.
Comment
Oddly distinctive. Curiously sweet and savoury.

Dave Broom

Nose
Pale pink. Rhubarb and cream. Light berry fruit accents with dry notes. Dilute redcurrant juice, blackberry leaf, young spirit behind.
Palate
Sweetness sitting on top of dry cereal/dry grass spirit. Not knitted or balanced.
Finish
Fruit pastilles.
Comment
Another finish. Why precisely?
