    SMWS Notes:

    To nose this is to open a drawer in an ancient, well-polished
    dark oak dresser, with some Harrogate toffees lurking in a
    corner. Lively for its age, but the nose prickle soon wears off,
    revealing both meaty (honey-glazed pork, leather satchel) and
    floral notes (faint attar of roses). The latter become dried rose
    petals, or pot-pourri in a brass bowl, when water is added; the
    former a roasting tin, glazed with treacle. At natural strength,
    the taste is peppery, with Hessian and polished leather; with
    water the texture is waxy and tooth-coating; the taste sweet with
    a shake of salt, and a whiff of fireworks in the finish. Old
    fashioned. 

    Drinking tip: A little gold for a rainy day with toffees 

    Colour: Dull gold, old gold
