    SMWS Tasting Notes

    We loosened ties, settled in imaginary armchairs, listening to Leon Redbone's `Relax`, so heavenly was the nose; burnt orange, hazelnut cream and barley sugar, `scented wood and spice, like a Swedish sauna` said somebody, (leaving the rest of us wondering what kind of spice!). Rich vanilla custard and fudge developed. The bourbon influence (vanilla, passion fruit and aromatic wood with a tannic tail) on the palate prompted gasps of approval, `If this was served as an aperitif, dinner would have to wait!` With water, the altered character revolved around citrus (lemon peel sorbet, sherbet) and muted smoke. This distillery was founded in 1843 by the Mathesen brothers.
