    sergeColour: just the same. Nose: interesting! We have the same kind of profile but,
    indeed, closer to a Bordeaux in a certain way. More on blackcurrants, a little
    bell pepper… Also much more vinous, although it’s not excessively so. Not as
    clean but still quite fresh and lively. Now, it’s rather simple and lacking a
    little definition, but we do have the fresh red fruits coming through after a
    while, as well as quite some kirsch again and cake. Rather pleasant, in fact,
    even if quite far from ‘Scotch whisky’. Mouth: now it’s this one which is
    cleaner. Bold, hot, extremely fruity (this palate would fit the SMWS’ nose
    better!) on strawberry jam and caramel, getting very honeyed. Very sweet and
    nervous at the same time! Something toasted… Crystallized fruits (oranges)…
    Getting quite spicy and gingery, with quite some (soft) tannins. And the finish
    is long, still punchy and remaining a little hot, on strawberry jam. A good
    finished one, no doubt.
