    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Flavour Profile: Lightly peated

    Colour: White gold

    The nose delivered clean, mild smoke, then woody
    autumnal notes of coppiced hazel, beech mast and bonfires; eventually tobacco
    leaf, gorse, Germolene and leather medicine bags emerged. Yes, there was
    peat-smoke on the palate too – but it was also surprisingly sweet, with caramel
    wafers, drinking chocolate, fondant, brioche and ginger cake, before developing
    more masculine, meaty flavours. The reduced nose gave us cocoa-dusted chocolate
    truffles and sweet pastries against rye bread, lemon, sweet smoke and sage and
    marjoram. The palate, with toasted marshmallows and barbecued meats, had somthing
    of a fairground feel. Interesting and slightly enigmatic whisky from
    the Kennethmont cratur crafters.

    Drinking tip: To accompany the first bonfire of the season
