    This is a dram I prefer without any water in it. The lime bitterness and mintiness generated when adding water isn't for me
    • Nose

      Apricot on top of a background of chili pepper
      Layers of vanilla behind
      Adding water turns the pepper to some sort of mint and reveals some oranges
    • Taste

      Attacking on apricot in the mouth with a peppery tinge, very close to jalapeños then goes to medium hot layered on oak and bitter. Kind of like lime
      Adding water reinforces the apricot and complements the pepper/mint nicely
    • Finish
      82 82
      Finishes on milk chocolate with a bit of caramel
      Adding water drives the finish to a hotter, more minty and more fruity finish

    SMWS Tasting Notes: We imagined sitting in a traditional Spanish courtyard garden, with plants in terracotta pots hanging from whitewashed walls, drinking sparkling sweet cherry lemonade. Nothing sweet on the palate neat, our tongue sizzled when the intense flavour started to overwhelm us searing our cheeks like red hot cinnamon-orange spiced black tea – we all reached for the water jug. Back in the shade of the courtyard garden we were now able to relax with caramelised peach ice cream and salted caramel sauce as well as coconut lime cup-cakes and a Spanish flan made with orange zest and cinnamon.

    Malty, creamy, and sweet citrus.
    • Nose
      Malt, caramel, sweet caramelized citrus and vanilla, a touch of mulberry and oak.
    • Taste
      Sweet citrus and cream, malt, and honey liqueur.
    • Finish
      Caramel and orange peel and dark chocolate.
