    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Auspicious gold

    Flavour: Spicy & sweet

    This rare offering, from the distillery originally built as
    Glen Grant Number Two, had a subtle, unusual nose – initially yeasty (sourdough
    bread, Hefeweizen beer), then developing leather, plasticine and peeled twigs,
    fruit skins (especially orange) and eventually, chocolate. The taste combined
    the dark sweetness of Demerara, toffee and Bourneville, with orange, black
    pepper and leather (someone suggested ‘manuka honey on a razor strop’). The
    reduced nose had herbal notes (coriander, nettles) wood polish and sweet
    perfumes (jelly beans, dolly mixtures, gummi bears, rose hip tea). The palate
    balanced that jelly bean sweetness with slightly bitter lemons and mild pepper
    heat.

    Drinking Tip: Whenever you have a craving for jelly beans
