Michael Jackson

Nose
Lemony. Fragrant.
Palate
Tongue-coating. Spicy. Intense. Victoria sponge. Marmalade. Oranges and lemons.
Finish
Big, zesty. Long.
Comment
The typical fruitiness of the Yoichi whiskies, but less peat than I remember.

Dave Broom

Nose
Dry. Turf/turned earth, smoke, green sticks. With water, apple becomes the dominant aroma, with lemon, crisp (nutty) malt, tea and oak.
Palate
Quite intense to start, but opens well. Apple and nut, dried fruit, spice, ginger biscuits, pepper and dry wood. Light and dry.
Finish
Good length but maybe a little woody.
Comment
The driest and leanest of this flight, but has some complexity.
