Michael Jackson

Nose
Very aromatic. Spicy. Vanilla-like.
Palate
Cookie-like. Dusty. Sherbety. Orange oil. Very lively indeed.
Finish
Woody, drying.
Comment
Again, very fruity, but lacking in other flavours.

Dave Broom

Nose
Peaty: smoked meat, a just-dead bonfire, dry leaf with light oil/resin. Fragrant. With water a hint of sulphur, bay, and a nutty maltiness.
Palate
Bone dry, smoky: burning timbers. Light butteriness/sweet macadamia nuttiness.
Finish
Bone dry, smoky.
Comment
Well-made and gentle, but straight down the middle rather than mouth-filling.
