    SMWS Tasting Notes: Aromas began with the sweet seduction of vanilla and coconut that ventured into substantial oaky tones like freshly sawn timber in a sawmill. Soft flowers gave us the impression of strolling through an alpine meadow in springtime whilst sipping on a creamy banana milkshake. Fruity tones introduced fresh pineapple and lemon cordial, perhaps with a slice of sponge cake on the side. The palate progressed from a chilli and ginger start into lime marmalade and the sweetness of icing sugar before landing onto grated milk chocolate. More developed notes touched on gentian root and a sweet herbal concoction that contained elements of peppermint. A continuation of fresh wood remained through to the finish along with coconut husk and crumbly ginger biscuits.
