    Incredibly great malt!
    Something like that has become really rare today!

    If someone wants to sell a bottle or exchange, I would be happy about a PN!

    I loved this one, lemons, fresh spring flowers, sweet pastry. Need to take some time to dive into this one a little bit more but it was good enough to buy a bottle ;-)

    Notes of the SMWS: https://www.smws.com/princes-street-gardens-in-summer

    The nose takes you to Princes Street Gardens in the summer – grass, roses, flower beds, ice-cream vans and pastry wagons laden with donuts, Danishes and churros; also perfumed sweets (sherbet straws, blackcurrant, lemon, apple). The palate is delicious – tropical fruits (custard apple, monstera, Charentais melon), vanilla slices and dark chocolate digestive biscuits – all balanced by subtle back-tastes of wood and clean leather. The reduced nose is even fresher, with a dominant flavour of perfumed pear. The palate has that je ne sais quoi of age – oak, putty, Gewurtztraminer and Hoegaarden against the marshmallow, coconut, cocoa and biscuit of luxury Rocky Road.
    Price: 285 GBP
