Michael Jackson

Nose
Molasses. Hickory. Briar. Herbal, tea-like, rye notes.
Palate
A powerful whiskey. Spicy rye against a big corn background. Some malt, too.
Finish
Vanilla. Spiced rum. Charred oak.
Comment
The wildness of 101, tempered with the extra rye, makes for a very distinctive whiskey.

Dave Broom

Nose
Big and perfumed: dried lavender, honey, cake mix, black cherry and rye pepperiness.
Palate
Huge, heavy and oily, then the acidic rye blasts its way in like Jesse James and takes control souring things up and giving a powerful mouthful that balances sweet and savoury beautifully.
Finish
Long with wonderful balance.
Comment
A classic big-boned style that gets maximum extraction of flavours.
