Michael Jackson

Nose
Cream. Toffee.
Palate
Spicy. Complex. Maple syrup. Fruity, cinnamon. Brown sugar, baclava pastry.
Finish
Balancing dryness. Very slight woodiness. Firm, gripping.
Comment
Well-balanced. Full of flavour.

Dave Broom

Nose
Slick and fruity (toffee apple), becoming buttery with water. Malt, nuts, sesame oil and some sherried notes. Plenty going on.
Palate
Rounded and soft with a burst of spiciness mid-palate. There's some smoke as well. Complex and soft with excellent balance.
Finish
Dry, a little short?
Comment
Strikes an excellent balance between those spicy high tones and a sweet but nutty palate. A little slick.
