    SMWS Tasting Notes

    The rich nose had us spouting suggestions ; brandy snaps , caramel, molasses, honeycomb and banana toffee. It reminded the Botanist of a celebrity chef's 'Just Desserts ' Chocolate box. Our palates were bombarded by Demerara, muscovado, fruit cake and fig rolls ; there could have been a bottle of Madeira and a matchbox on the mantelpiece. Water brought rhubarb crumble, cooking apples and dried fruit to the nose; we identified spicy Moroccan tagine stew with couscous. The reduced palate was also slightly meaty , but with mellow toffee, fruits and orange oil. The distillery dates from 1891 and is currently owned by Dewars.
