    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Fabulous ruby tints were reflected in the nose - pomegranates, blood oranges, blackcurrant jam, glacé cherries and Vimto. Lots of fruit and Demerara; someone said, `Nutty characters` the rest of us bristled. The palate was tannic but fruity with pomegranate, bitter marmalade, vanilla, caramelised sugar and angostura; delivering a great afterglow. The reduced nose changed again - magic balloons, cough syrup, coal-tar soap, Ambre Solaire suncream and nut oil. A drop of water elicited a lively, fruity complexity; the Whisky-bard reminisced about raspberry wafers and 'monkey's blood' on ice-cream cones. A very special dram from the distillery built by John Duff in 1894.
