Michael Jackson

Nose
Red summer fruits. Cherry pits. Almonds.
Palate
Big, firm, smooth. Much drier than a typical Turkey, or any other bourbon. Flowery. Lavender.
Finish
An explosion of dry, cedary flavours.
Comment
I like this very much, for its complexity and originality. As a bourbon? The useful phrase ‘something else' comes to mind.

Dave Broom

Nose
Heavy and powerful. Rum-like: black fruits, molasses sugar. Caramelised orange, leather and dark chocolate (mint?). Black honey. Woody notes.
Palate
Massively powerful, sits on the tongue like a grizzly bear. Chestnut honey but with a teasing savoury edge and a lift from the rye.
Finish
A little woody, then sweet spices.
Comment
All the power you expect from this distillery. Late at night.
