  3. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes: We all agreed this was dangerously easy and inviting at first nosing. Lots of canvas, putty, tutti frutti, exotic fruit bubble-gum, sunflower oil, hand lotion and freshly baked white bread. Lusciously approachable. Reduction brought out honey, mint tea, white pepper, jasmine flowers, bay leaf and freshly laundered linens. A tad drier and more complex with water. The neat palate showed an immediate and juicy sweetness. Lots of vivacious green fruits, golden sultanas, ripe mango, cider apple, treacle, golden syrup sponge cake and custard sweetened with dessert wines. Water brought lemon curd, syrupy fruit salad juices, orange blossom, tangerine liqueur, rosewater, fruit teas, toasted biscuits and a light appetising waxiness.
