Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Strawberries and cream. Vanilla. Heady.
Palate: Firm, Slippery-smooth, cookie-like maltiness, spicy middle. Lots of flavour development.
Finish: Creamy, fruity. Like a Slavic sour cream pancake laced with Maraschino cherry brandy.
Comment: Complex. Entrancing.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Incense. Lightly oily (wood oil), russet apples and buttery notes. Quite firm. Some pineapple and then floral notes.
Palate: Medium bodied. Light cinnamon spiciness, then apple and a sparkling feel.
Finish: Fades, leaving a slightly bitter note.
Comment: Has good energy, but just grips slightly on the finish.
