Michael Jackson

Nose
Cigar-boxes. Hint of charcoal.
Palate
Very firm. Full of flavours, tightly combined. Whole almonds, marzipan.
Finish
Very long. Flowery. Violets.
Comment
Perhaps encouraged by the dark-orange colour, the descriptors sound sweet but overall effect is one of pithy dryness, with great finesse.

Jim Murray

Nose
Pronounced oak softened by fruity rye and gentle vanilla. A little toffee and honey.
Palate
Big, big lift off with a powering oaky-rye surge and an immediate arrival of spice. Toasty towards the middle with the corn arriving late on.
Finish
Long, cocoa and oak finale; burnt toast with a spread of honey.
Comment
More oak and age than normal. Being small batch, it does vary but is always delicious.
