Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Light, fresh but sweet, appetising, fruity, pear-like.
Palate: Dryish, pear-like, more fruitiness as flavour develops. A dash of water releases a hint of smokiness and some sweet, malty notes.
Finish: Restrained, aromatic.
Comment: Lean, smooth and appetising.
7.5
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Youthful and slightly fat. Quite underripe.
Palate: Fat and full, lots of malt concentrate. Initially sweet then some drier banana notes . Refreshing.
Finish: Some oaky notes.
Comment: Rather simple, but very enjoyable - except for the slightly duff nose.
