    N: It’s sweet, not that i have a hugely sweet preference, but this I like. You can’t go wrong with this desirably deep/integrated sweet sherry nose with a sweet foosty depth. Notes then of Cognac served with crepes, toast, on-the-turn popcorn and one slowly caramelising marshmallow. Looking again, I found a deep & distant yet permeated mouldy milky sour note combined with a drop of honeyed Baby Cham - a character that speaks of 27 years in a bourbon cask [save for the Baby Cham, that’s more for Sake].
    T: Reminds me immediately of my one day in the Aberfeldy warehouse and a meeting with a particular single cask from 1980. This echoes cask #49’s the same uncomplicated nature, clearly heavily aged and drinkable even if somewhat concentrated and woody - but one that holds itself just fine. Later I find lingering sour dry honeyed candy fruits, toasted barley and sour yet sugary? cereal/fruits. There’s some bubblegum/aniseed/cinnamon/root beer heat even with time and water.
    F: It’s toast-dry with a touch of smoke and toasted barleycorn skins, whilst always maintaining those rich sherried candy fruits - albeit distant by now.
    C: Possibly a tad over but very decent and most likeable.Scores a B

    Notes from the SMWS website: https://www.smws.com/whisky/latest-outturn/sweet-smooth-s-more

    Initial price in April 2018: 153 GBP

    "Sweet, smooth and fruity aromas invited us to settle into a comfy armchair put our feet up and relax with a pineapple banana smoothie in hand. But there was a lot more to discover; roasted cinnamon pears in a dark chocolate sauce, Peach Melba Greek yoghurt cheesecake and a creamy fruit cocktail trifle. On the palate soo sweet, soo smooth – s’more mini trifles; layers of fluffy toasted marshmallow mousse, chocolate pudding and fudgy brownies, to top it all roasted mini maple cardamom marshmallows. A drop of water and a darker sweetness arrived; dandelion and burdock soda sweetened with pear juice spiced with ginger accompanied by cinnamon churros with a Mexican chocolate dipping sauce. "
