Michael Jackson

Crisp. Spicy. Ginger ice cream.
Restrained start. Gentle flavour development. Lean. Lightly creamy. A suggestion of malted milk. Some concentrated sweetness.
Now the ice cream is rum and raisin.
Macallan Lite? Because I dislike the idea, I don't want to like the whisky, but it is a pleasant, easily drinkable dram.

Dave Broom

Light, spicy and quite citric. Malt, orange peel, almond, caramelised peach and baked apple.
Soft and light with an attractive juiciness from those fruits. Delicate and well balanced.
A little rapid.
A (deliberately) lighter style of Macallan. Wonder how the purists will take it?
