    Notes von der SMWS Website: www.smws.com/suspend-your-disbelief

    Ausgabepreis Mai 2020: 63,50 GBP

    "The first statement was “this has something for everyone” – how true; cola cubes, salty caramel, red liquorice laces and assorted fruit flavoured candy pebbles next to a clean floral perfumed handkerchief. The taste dangerously moreish, sweet and salty popcorn as well as tropical fruit salad with a chilli, star anise, cinnamon and lime dressing. Water released a sweet smoke like that from a thurible being used in a religious procession along the waterfront. When we took a sip we started singing ‘Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whisky’. The beauty of a single cask as the ‘Wee Toon’ had truly delivered a surprise – suspend your disbelief."
