    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Rich gold
    Flavour: Spicy & sweet

    The nose started out quite lively – paint turning to
    William’s pear schnapps, then sherbet, vanilla ice-cream, toasted peaches, plum
    jam, chocolate and chestnut purée. The unreduced palate seemed quaintly curious
    – quite floral, but with caramel, Ice Magic toffee sauce, cocoa butters,
    marzipan and spicy heat in the finish. The reduced nose delighted us with
    fruity toffee, white chocolate, guava and almond; someone described it as
    ‘Heavenly’. The reduced palate had luscious pecan pie, and almond cake with
    pear liqueur – an unusual dram from the sixteen men of Tain. ‘No twinkle-toed,
    shy maiden, but a mature, busty beauty!’ one panellist opined.

    Drinking Tip: With dessert or at least something sweet
