Michael Jackson

Nose
Treacly. Icing sugar. American cream soda.
Palate
Good malt background. Vanilla. Liquorice. Slight coal/tar smokiness.
Finish
Soothing rather than aggressive.
Comment
A big whisky, with some of the smokiness I remember.

Dave Broom

Nose
Rich, malty, sweet: nutty toffee, caramelised apple, vanilla, butterscotch. With water, light spice and smoke, balsa wood and a sappy youthfulness.
Palate
A sweet, nutty start, then dries. Good weight with slightly hard spirit. Decent balance.
Finish
Dry, fresh.
Comment
It just might benefit from a little more time in the cask.
