    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Coppery amber

    Weirdly complex – yeast, red grapes, linseed oil, ham & pickle crisps, winey-garlicky cheese fondue, white jasmine, strawberry shortcake fruit corner and Schweppes lemonade – everything at once like a medieval banquet. A savoury palate; brown sauce covered cold Scotch pie and more of those crisps but also lovely peachy-mango coulis, Canada Dry ginger ale and a dry peppery heat. Dry in reduction like an Oloroso sherry, wet clay, window putty, pork chops & apple sauce, Irn Bru, Wham or Refreshers bars – we couldn’t decide. To taste we thought the complexity was lost; it became dusty, with mutton, leather and starfruit. This Peterhead distillery closed in 1983.
