Michael Jackson

Nose
Woody. Dusty. Dried bananas. Brown crystal sugar.
Palate
Dense. Drying. Bitter chocolate fudge cake.
Finish
Aromatic. Cedary. Woody.
Comment
The wisdom of the ages is locked in there somewhere, but it is hard to penetrate the wood.

Dave Broom

Nose
Huge. Concentrated and almost meaty. Pipe smoke, black cherry. Sweetness in the middle.
Palate
Perfume changes to rosemary and thyme. Deep and rich. Tannic.
Finish
Slightly bitter.
Comment
The wood just a little obtrusive.
