Michael Jackson

Nose
Notably sweet, but also tea-like.
Palate
Satiny. Starts drier. More tightly combined flavours take longer to unfold. Gradually sweeter and more orangey (or tropical fruit?), but always with burnt-grass peatiness behind. Much more complex.
Finish
Very long, soothing, warming.
Comment
More backbone. Slightly haughty, but clubbable.

Dave Broom

Nose
We're in a soft world of fruits: caramel, overripe banana, raspberry, cocoa powder and with water, raisin bread, pulpy fruits and lemon tart.
Palate
Soft and chewy with a good elegant grainy platform for some pretty spicy attack.
Finish
Silky and soft.
Comment
Big, sexy and luscious. Sophia Loren (or George Clooney depending on your preference).
