Michael Jackson

Nose
Assertive. Pecan pie. Pastry.
Palate
Lots of fresh-oak vanilla. Creamy in both flavour and texture. Cookie-like. Cooked apricot or peach.
Finish
Maple syrup. Smoky.
Comment
Lots of layers. A great dessert whiskey. Thanksgiving dinner?

Dave Broom

Nose
Gentle and perfumed: fresh herb, cinnamon, orange blossom honey/burnt orange peel, redcurrant, caramelised fruit, prune tart.
Palate
Soft with a prickly bite mid-palate where the orange zest and hickory wood emerges, then smoothes out again. Vanilla and mocha coffee.
Finish
Woody, then mellow fruits.
Comment
A classic, complex wheated bourbon. Great material for an Old Fashioned.
