Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Lemonade/Lucozade. Spritzy-sweetsharp. Pink bubblegum. All this, yet well formed and not overpowering. (Japanese levels of complexity!)
Palate: Simple and somewhat winey at first. Then chocolate. A little nutty?
Finish: Oily perhaps and a little toasty.
Comment: Funky nose is compromised by a relatively straightforward palate. Still enjoyable enough, though.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Very herbal. Angelica, lemon grass. Like a chartreuse. Quite pleasant.
Palate: Smooth at start then getting assertively oaky and bitter. The herbal notes keep on.
Finish: Quite short, slightly biscuity.
Comment: The nose is appealing but the palate far tougher. Water eases the release of grassy notes. But the aromatic profile keeps shallow.
