Michael Jackson

Nose
Like walking into an expensive sweet shop. The sweets are all in boxes, perhaps even gift-wrapped, but the aromas of fudge, chocolate, mint and Parma violets linger in the air.
Palate
Honeyed. Cinder toffee. Shortbread.
Finish
Balancing flowery dryness.
Comment
A lovely, elegant, delicately malty Yamazaki.

Dave Broom

Nose
Round and creamy with underlying sweetness. Apricot, mango, cooked apple; runny honey, malt and a forested note: moss, sandalwood.
Palate
Gentle and lightly chewy: yellow wine gums, vanilla sugar. Balanced between dry oak and sweet spirit. Gets spicier towards the finish.
Finish
Nutty.
Comment
Excellent balance and intriguing complexity.
