    SMWS Tasting Notes: Things kick off with spiced waxes, warm coal hearths, watercress, gauze and ointments. Cooling notes of polo mints and cherry lips are noted alongside salted rice cakes and wasabi peas. Water shifts things towards ripe green fruits with banana, guava, watermelon and star fruit. Some lemon sherbet, muddled mint, lapsang souchong and new leather. In the mouth it is syrupy sweet and full of vanilla cream, gooseberry fool, hand lotion, parma violets, orange oils, raspberryade and britvic tablets. After dilution there’s a little coastal aspect with notes of beach sand and pebbles. Then lemon balm, green wood, agave nectar, bubblegum and pear drops. A pleasing citrus buzz in the aftertaste.
