    SMWS Tasting Notes: The nose opened with a punnet of red grapes sloshed with red wine vinegar. Then smouldering heather, damp soil, foliage, prawns on a BBQ and freshly landed mackerel. Wild strawberries, smoked mint leaf and fire embers. Water unveils wet seaweed, cold smoked meats, polish cabbage strew with smoked sausages and chilli-infused chocolate. The palate when neat starts sweetly with a butter texture and notes of preserved lemon, fennel seed, cigar butts and then an earthy undercurrent of wintergreen, rumbling spice and wild garlic. Water brings classical notes of kippers, lemon juice, vegetal peat, salty tuna steak and a robust and malty smokiness. Previously in a bourbon hogshead for seven years before being transferred to a first fill STR barrique.
