    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Flavour: Young & spritely

    The clean and cooling nose brought thoughts of waking in the morning to a bowlful of cornflakes, barley sugar and Murray mints; lemon and lime curd and Tunnock’s caramel wafer. The neat palate was much bigger than the nose, but remaining clean and crisp – sugared mice and Kendal mint cake with lemon rind and oil. With water, the nose became creamier and warmer – toffee, lemon bonbons. The freshness of pine needles and pine sap on a warm day brought childhood memories of walking through a forest. The reduced palate continued the pine sap theme, with a lemon and lime zing. This distillery describes its whiskies as ‘the true spirit of nature’.

    Drinking tip: An aperitif, at a picnic or to wake you up from slumber.
