Michael Jackson

Nose
A subtle suggestion of soft liquorice, as in Pontefract cakes.
Palate
Light, soft, syrupy. The liquorice more emphatic now. Spanish root. Develops juicy, mouth-watering flavours. Aniseed. Coconut.
Finish
Soothing, relaxing.
Comment
A whisky for a reverie. Daydream of childhood and the local sweet-shop.

Dave Broom

Nose
Sweet spices with toffee, banana, cream, dried pear and fruit cake (sultana, raisin and cherry). Complex and delicious.
Palate
The spiciness comes right through from the start giving a subtle lift to the rich fruits, light sherry and ginger loaf.
Finish
Long and soft.
Comment
A very elegant, superbly balanced middle-weight dram.
