Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Enormous! Darker, sweeter and richer than all the others put together. Marmalade, sugar candy, orange liqueur chocolates. Sultry.
Palate: Sufficient spiciness and structure to balance the huge waves of sweetness. Orange again. Shows complexity.
Finish: Long and sweet. Lingering.
Comment: A sweet mother for ya!
8.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Mint toffee. Fudge.
Palate: Mint toffees again. Dark fudge. Candied prunes.
Finish: Some astringency. Lots of alcohol. The two seem to round each other into one big punch (of the pugilistic type).
Comment: Ideal for Thanksgiving or Christmas. If you don't like your in-laws or the television, knock yourself out after dinner.
