Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Spicier than 101 but with weight and fragrance. As it opens (and it needs time) out come classic WT notes: ripe fruits, rich dark honey, with added cigar box, leather, peach, honeysuckle.
Palate: A little more wood than 101 but balanced. Chewy weight with an extra layer of dried spice: garam masala.
Finish: Long and rich.
Comment: A complex, serious, sipping bourbon.
8.8
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Slightly smoky. Char. Oak. Leather. Tightly combined aromas and flavours.
Palate: Dry maltiness. Raisins. Fruitiness. Fudge. A hint of dusty chocolate.
Finish: Fruity, sappy.
Comment: Slightly austere and cerebral. One to sip while watching a video of an art-house movie.
