Michael Jackson

Nose
Dryish, fresh oak. Ferns, forest flowers.
Palate
Firm, toffee, coconut.
Finish
Dry, spicy. Vanilla pod. Hint of char.
Comment
Lots happening, lively, enjoyable.

Dave Broom

Nose
Peaty (smoked fish) but with some perfume (lemon, pot pourri, dried heather) and softness (nut oil).
Palate
Rounded and sweet. Very sweet in fact: like cinnamon toast with demerara sugar, but there's smoke as well, and it's in balance.
Finish
Medicinal. Smoked fish again.
Comment
A fascinating package with unlikely flavour combinations. Barmen will love this.
