    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Sunlight
    on straw

    Flavour Profile: Sweet,
    fruity & mellowThe nose had some maritime characteristics (old boats and
    ship chandlers) along with mineral notes (putty, shale, slate), five spice
    powder, honey on toast and salted caramels. Sweetness really came through on
    the palate – honeyed barley, toasted marshmallows, vanilla, cherry lips and
    foamy shrimps – but the finish added complexity, with liquorice, lemon peel,
    parsley and envelope glue. The reduced nose evoked fresh sea breezes, flapping
    sails and ship’s timbers; with coconut, lemon drizzle cake and jasmine tea
    served on board. The palate was now pleasantly sweet and tasty, with gentle
    teasing spices arriving later. From the northern sea-port of Wick.
