Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Toasted almonds, raspberries, limes, lemongrass.
Palate: Light, but firm. Sweet, like biting into a raspberry-jam tart. Then blackberries and passion-fruit (Bowmore?).
Finish: Seems slightly sharp and stinging at first, then a gradually unfolding potpourri dryness.
Comment: Some very enjoyable flavours, but lacking in dimension for me. I'll try it again at bedtime.
Taster   Paul Pacult
Nose: The ethereal bouquet is delicately fruity at the opening. With aeration, there are hints of rubber (pencil eraser) and cotton fabric. Deflates in the glass after one minute.
Palate: Sweet at palate entry, sweet at mid-palate. So wan in flavour and paper-thin in texture that I consider screaming, \"Give me some meat\". Manufactured. Light-bodied. Doesn't quite do it justice in terms of texture.
Finish: Candy sweet. Watery. Brief.
Comment: Okay, okay, so you can mix with it. Do I hear any other useful applications?...I'm waiting...Is this that famous sound of one hand clapping?
