    SMWS Tasting Notes

    There was some bourbon character in the aromas of vanilla, rum and raisin and PVA glue; however, there was also treacle, dates, dark chocolate and barley sugar to deepen the experience. The unreduced flavour was fiery and drawing, also like bourbon, yet complex and rewarding with dried fruit, nuts and chocolate with some wood sap. The reduced nose had dried bananas and walnut fudge while the flavour was now velvety smooth, and richly decadent with banana toffee and iced caramels. Youthful fun and solemn maturity combined. This is from the only grain distillery currently operating in the Highlands
