Michael Jackson

Nose
The skins of Seville oranges. The apricot note of Oloroso sherry.
Palate
Beautifully combined mellow flavours: nutty, sweet, juicy sherry, very orangey fruitiness, heather, cinnamon. Very spicy.
Finish
Long, tingling. Very warming.
Comment
Delicious.

Doug McIvor

Nose
Entrancing, lightly honeyed, sweet and gentle.
Palate
Full, succulent and buttery, whafts of sherry, nuttiness and wavering spice.
Finish
Long and warming, cinnamon prickles through the lingering sweet sherry.
Comment
Some of the 10 years brandyish elements subdued to give a rounded gentle being.
