    SMWS tasting notes: The nose opened with bursts of solid cedar wood encasing sweet butter, custard and malted biscuits. Fruits rapidly followed with a pleasing display of pineapple, honeydew melon and caramelised pear doused with a splash of citrus. A peppery tingle brought the palate towards deliciously sweet flavours of toffee apples and crème brulee dusted with Demerara sugar and orange blossom. Water enhanced the cedar tones with lots of sweet wood and its welcomed companions of coconut and vanilla ice cream. Herbal elements teased at the edges but it was a boost of tangerine, caramel and pineapple puree that seized the show. Fluffy candyfloss and baked Alaska furthered the sugary delights before cereals, ripe apples and plenty of oak bound the finish.
