Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Very faint seaweed. Estery. Fruity.
Palate: Very light-bodied, but with interesting flavours. Coconut. Pistachio nuts. Rosewater.
Finish: Hessian, cedar and oak. Salt, very definitely. Seems to lift in the finish.
Comment: The flavours are tightly combined. I imagine exploring them late at night in a vaguely disreputable bar in the tropics. Perhaps it's the name.

Taster   Paul Pacult
Nose: Intensely grainy and cereal sweet, with background touches of toasted almond and nougat. The aroma is vivacious at first, then it fades to obscurity with frightening velocity.
Palate: Ethereal to light-bodied. Pleasant, if one-dimensional on the tongue, showing mild, grain mash, manufactured, sweet flavour notes of light toffee and cane sugar.
Finish: Thin. Highland Spring mineral water shows more depth of character.
Comment: I find it too manipulated and, as a result, painfully bland. A cardboard cut-out.
