Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Minty. Oily. Parma violets.
Palate: Hard bitter chocolate. A praline filled with almond cream. Faintly smoky, suggesting coffee being roasted for espresso.
Finish: Rich black coffee, a quick splash of rum and crisp, stem-ginger, petit-fours.
Comment: Seductive. I found myself using such post-prandial language. Will she respect me in the morning?
8.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Hauntingly perfumed. Complex, honeyed and soft: orange blossom, tangerine peel, poached peach, mint, smoky oak.
Palate: Ripe and soft, like orange honey dribbled on top of Greek yoghurt. Caramelised fruits, it gets creamier as it opens.
Finish: Dry and elegant with a little grippy wood.
Comment: Sophisticated stuff with a subtle southern charm. Classic Manhattan material.
