    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Lemony straw
    Flavour: Spicy & dry

    The nose had oodles of fruit (apple, pear, passion-fruit,
    lemon, raisins) – also marzipan, hazelnut, marshmallows, iced caramels, fudge,
    sherbet, custard creams and some fragrant floral and woody elements. Hot and
    sweet, the palate spoke to us of pencil chewing, Mexican hot chocolate, chilli
    porridge sprinkled with sweet flowers; then passion-fruit and hay. The reduced
    nose became more dusty and chalky – popped rice, rainbow drops, hay, plywood
    and peaches. With water, the palate developed herbal, medicinal and tobacco
    notes, as well as gooseberry chews, flower bulbs and chocolate-covered
    pretzels. The distillery lies between Aberlour and the mountain it is named
    after.

    Drinking Tip: To accompany a lazy weekend brunch? Needs very
    little water, if any
