    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Lion's paw
    Flavour: Spicy & sweet

    First impression the Panel voiced, this is a sniffers dram;
    glue, solventy and warm paper from a photocopier in use a few decades ago, you
    know what we mean. With time fruity/earthy notes appear like apple, banana
    leaf, aloe plant, cactus and mango trees; we have moved into a glass house at
    the Botanics. The taste is hot, sweet/sour, a creamy horseradish and almost
    numbing. With water we left the glasshouse and are outside in a tropical garden
    during a very heavy downpour. It feels hot, wet and damp with floral and fruity
    aromas all around us. The taste now sweet, like a very ripe orange, creamy like
    vanilla custard as well as fresh like an apple sorbet. This distillery,
    starting with Glen, is named after Scotland’s smallest city.

    Drinking Tip: When in need of a sugar rush
