Michael Jackson

Nose
Rich, creamy, flowery, fruity.
Palate
Chocolate pralines filled with fudgy toffee and orange cream.
Finish
Crunchy cookies, slightly burnt at the edges. A suggestion of char.
Comment
This should obviously be an ingredient of all self-respecting desserts. An accompaniment to them, too. And an after dinner drink. You are in a dry county? So what?

Dave Broom

Nose
Takes time to open, then rich, polished oak tones alongside pepper, cumin, nutmeg. In time a more fragrant lift: Turkish Delight.
Palate
Big soft and creamy, ripe berries and honey. Big, soft and powerful.
Finish
Gentle honeyed/buttery.
Comment
Gentle but rich. Somehow the reverse of the Weller, smells spicy and becomes honeyed in the mouth.
