- SMWS Tasting Notes
Colour: Light toffee or pale amber
Flavour: Sweet, fruity & mellow
With its combination of exotic fruits (dragon-fruit, strawberry, orange sherbet) intense sweetness (candy floss, Skittles) and pleasant toasted oak, the nose was immediately appealing. With water we found it intriguing and enigmatic but fun to chase – tobacco, foamy bananas, vanilla, mango, coconut and flowers rewarded our efforts. The palate was sweetly succulent, velvety, perfumed and mouth-watering – Turkish Delight, watermelon, gooseberry, lemon and cherry drops with iced gingerbread and cinnamon adding to the sherbety tingles. Water made it juicily tropical (fruit cocktail, pineapple) but with perfumed lavender and a lovely subtle, spicy, woody depth. From the only working distillery at Carron.
Drinking tip: Whenever you feel the need for a tropical holiday – but can’t afford it.
