    A panic buy when I attended a members smws preview outturn night in 2019. The nose along made me buy it.

    Nose: aniseed, cooked apples, puff pastry.

    Taste: poached pear, granny’s smith apple, lime and cream fresh.

    Finish: medium to long, lovey tart notes.

    Outstanding 24 year old which packs full flavour despite its low abv. Would never get it again but very enjoyable.

    SMWS Tasting Notes: When The Panel nosed this one the room fell silent and nobody wrote anything down – they just sat back and savoured the moment. Refocused, reluctant whispered replies of hints of tobacco, expensive leather, chocolate-caramelised macadamia nuts and sandalwood perfumed oil. The taste neat was creamy, light and tropical like a slice of no bake lychee and passionfruit cheesecake. With timid reservations, we added a tear drop of water, more fresh oaky aromas next to herby pine needle tea and the intoxicating scent of peonies and jasmine emerged. On the palate now, a myriad of delicate flavours including peach, pineapple and orange but also warm brioche with a honey lemon glaze.
