    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Dessert rose
    Flavour: Deep, rich & dried fruits

    We found a very interesting nose with lots going on – plum
    jam, peach, apricot, rose-hip syrup, cinnamon toast, honey, toffee, almond,
    celery leaf and fresh oak. The palate started with crisp greengage freshness,
    before turning to pomegranates and red toffee apples, closing with dried figs
    and dates, mild spice and granola cereal notes. Water deepened the nose
    impressions – Danish pastries, Special K with dried strawberries, rose
    pot-pourri, sauna wood, hay, leather and cigar boxes. The reduced palate
    boasted fruit baskets, tingling ginger spice, tobacco, toffee and dark
    chocolate with cherry pieces. The distillery is operated by Berry Bros and
    Rudd.

    Drinking Tip: Different and versatile – an unusual aperitif
    perhaps – or while doing the ironing
