    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Elegant bronze sheen

    Flavour: Old & dignified

    On the nose, golden syrup sponge, peach cobbler and treacle tart were placed on a French polished mahogany table. There were also red velvet cupcakes and a heady plum liqueur. “Everything I look for in a dram!” said one Panellist. An intensely deep and rich experience, with Jamaica cake, baked apples and peaches, dark chocolate, honey and vanilla to taste. The mouth-feel was extraordinarily silky in texture as tropical, mango juices abound in the finish. Water brought sweet ginger, eucalyptus and start anise. One Panellist enjoyed candied fennel seeds whilst strolling through a fragrant and exotic spice market.

    Drinking tip: Enjoy at full strength for the ultimate experience
