Michael Jackson

Nose
Oak, cedar, spearmint.
Palate
Cypress. Sweet leaves. Fruity, winey, oaky.
Finish
Hint of peat. Powerful. Slightly woody.
Comment
Any whisky-lover would be glad of the chance to taste this, even if it is on the woody side.

Dave Broom

Nose
Fat and very sherried: walnut, treacle toffee, sticky toffee pudding, raisin and a strangely vegetal note.
Palate
Full-on sherry. The wood seems to have taken charge, giving it a slight astringency.
Finish
Long. Walnut bread. Dry.
Comment
Well made, but there's just too much sherry character which diminishes any complexity. A shame for the spirit which seems very good.
