    The first dram of the flight of five is poured. “What’s this?” asks Charles. This would remain the theme of the evening. Listed on Whiskybase as a 16yo but described on the SMWS tasting panel sheet as a 15yo, a 2nd fill bourbon barrel is credited.

    N: Charles starts us off with “bung cloth”. I get hessian sacks and dry grain also. Along with our host, this was collectively regarded as 'a prickly one’.
    T: The prickliness continues along resinous vanilla lines. 50/50 water brings a softer textured mouthfeel, though it continues to snap.
    F: Chalky/milky-dry and still with some resinous heat. Finishes bitter.
    C: Tactfully described as “inoffensive”, this I found similar to our aperitif.

    CASK No. 7.203JUICY, OAK & VANILLAANGELS’ TEARS

    https://www.smws.com/angels-tears

    At the start, the nose delivers orange fondant, orange coconut ice, apricot Danish and roasted peaches – gradually a floral note emerges – maybe a flower vase on a watchmaker’s workbench. The palate has a delightful soft, viscous texture and flavours of golden syrup, sweet coconut cream and pink wafers – so warming it’s almost salty – like angels’ tears. With water the nose finds chocolate tea cakes and sweetie tobacco. The palate is pure expanding joy – filling the mouth with warm spice and sweetness – spiced plum crumble, cinnamon gum, hot cross buns and Oddfellows sweets – a nippy tease tantalises the finish.
