    N: We’re onto another level after the young yet excellent Clynelish, yet at an age where a trade-off can occur with more wood & possible depth but with a potential loss of vibrancy and colour. The jury is out.
    T: Well you wouldn’t want too much more cask time. There’s a little putty and a little heat, more so with water [as Phil had indicated]. It pays off to drown this one, easily done and most effective with water in the mouth. Rather simple oaky barley water ensues. Careful management certainly pays off, eking out the nicely weighted oaked barley juice.
    F: Drowned or neat there’s far less heat, though at the death it’s always mustard-y and earthy after a long barley sugar period. Plenty of foostiness at the tail which is only a little puttied.
    C: Decent enough but another example that age is not always better.

    Notes von der SMWS Website https://www.smws.com/banana-daiquiri

    "The nose was divine, a heavenly cocktail of spiced rum, fresh mint and strawberries that reflected off a tall glass of mojito. Mashed banana joined creamy notes of vanilla and butter on hot crumpets. Thick wedges of fruitcake and marzipan sat beside custard cream biscuits as we approached the tingly palate that embraced the character of wasabi peas and horseradish sauce. Cinnamon blended with white chocolate and crème caramel before a fresh wave of peppermint drifted over coconut. A thick and viscous texture delivered fruit scones with clotted cream that later became custard over bananas. The texture endured through to the considerable finish that embraced both new oak and gentle spice."
