    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: 9CT gold

    Flavour: Old & dignified

    A dusty desk drawer to start with, delicate and fragile, then complex notes of frangipane with apricots, stewed apples and Calvados (the latter lending a slight prickle) – all refined and subdued. The taste at natural strength is soft and sweet; creamy (walnut oil, linseed oil) with some pepper in the finish. Water opens it somewhat, introducing burnt orange peel, snuffed candles, a hint of cloves and maraschino cherries. The taste is now sweet (orange icing sugar), mouth cooling (eucalyptus) and perfumed (rose petals, Turkish Delight), with pistachio nuts in the medium-length finish. Aristocratic and stylish; might replace a cocktail in the American Bar at the Savoy.

    Drinking tip: In a seraglio, discreetly
