Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Very fresh. Fresh apple.
Palate: Oily but also grainy. Sweet start, becoming grassy and mustardy.
Finish: Firm, long, appetising.
Comment: Very much in line with recent bottlings. Not especially peaty, but crisp, clean and decisive in it's flavours.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Waxy. Dried and overripe fruit. Becomes creamier with water. The waxiness is always there, but there's a slightly dirty note.
Palate: Honey, some sweetness. Engine oil.
Finish: Soft.
Comment: A good one, though spoiled by that slightly grubby character.
