    SMWS Tasting Notes: A deliriously pleasurable aroma. Riddled with leafy smoke, farmyard, honey glazed hams, black pepper, lemon cough drops, buttery pastries, lemongrass, dried kelp, motor oil, chalk, gauze, pine cones, bonfire smoke and oily sheep wool. Pure, evocative, complex and brilliant. Water brings many medicines, antiseptic, old tractor parts, mechanical fluids, rags, barnyards, cow shed funk, wild mushrooms, dried tarragon, cough mixtures and pot pourri. In the mouth it starts on oily textured peat, hessian rags, salted butter, fatty frying bacon, mutton strew, bailed hay, silage, green pepper, smoked meats, olive oil, wood spices, BBQ char and herbal mouthwash. A little water and there’s putty, tar liqueur, gentian eau de vie, mustard, lemon dressing, spiced plum sauce, cooked root vegetables, rice wine, meat broth, cured venison, old ink wells and a final honey-accented peaty flourish. Beautiful, old style, wonderfully evocative whisky.
