Michael Jackson

Nose
Seville orange. Fresh leather. Lemongrass. Peat.
Palate
Smooth, sweet. The fruitiest and most estery of the set.
Finish
Sweet grass. Juicy.
Comment
With its floweriness and a hint of peat, this seems to me a classic old-style Speysider.

Dave Broom

Nose
Finer nose, crisp with toasted almonds and a leaf mulch/earthy richness. Lightly peaty but in time a crème anglaise note mellows things slightly.
Palate
Firm and malty but that ripe apricot fleshiness fills out the mid-palate.
Finish
Chewy yet dry.
Comment
The dry amontillado.
