Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: A little closed without water; hints of grass, crystallised fruits and butter toffee. Water brings a note of dry cracker which mellows into juicier aromas.
Palate: Solid rich stuff that stays in the mouth, all polished wood, soft leather, chocolate, black fruits, pipe smoke and balancing crunchiness.
Finish: Lush and fruity slowly crisping up.
Comment: Like a gentleman's club: all leather chairs, cigar smoke and murmured conversations. A beauty.

Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Creamy. Mint humbugs. Mint toffee.
Palate: Sherryish. Nutty. raisins. Vanilla. A suggestion of trifle.
Finish: Quite big. Soothing. Slightly smoky.
Comment: A bit overbalanced by sherry, but nicely rounded by the smoky finish.
