    SMWS Tasting Notes

    The men became outrageous when this arrived. `Look at the legs!` exclaimed Seamus. We sniffed - `She's an elegant dame; who smokes` said someone. `No! A strawberry ballerina` Seamus retorted. The nose had toffee and plum jam; `Whoever she is, I'm in love!` the Whisky-bard cried. The palate had toffee, jam tarts, peppercorns, chocolate and ripe cherries - `a full-bodied, high-kicking, sexy diva` declared anonymous. The reduced nose had kirsch, cinder toffee, sandalwood and chocolate-coated strawberries. The reduced palate was gorgeously juicy, like pink champagne or sangria - even the Geordie-blender was eventually seduced. The distillery is close to the West Highland Way.

  2. AlecM scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The nose reminded me of one of those spreads with peanut butter and jam running through it. Taste has a big kick to it, but then you get jam tarts and then pepper. Finish is long and pleasant and definitely get strawberries as a lasting impression. Not sure it has the right balance between butter + jam + peppercorns. And it is very lip-numbing.
