    C: I was warmly offered this in the queue on day 2. This is super-rich with a thick mouthfeel to boot. More of this please.

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Buffed brass candlesticks

    Flavour: Spicy & dry

    An unusual old character brimming with rich honey, plums infused with cinnamon and saffron. The panel found wet wool along with earthy aromas. The taste neat was of Jammy Dodgers and melted stroopwafel, then slightly burned toast with sweet jam and hints of mint. The chair was reminded of the aromas of the shortbread factory in Aberlour High Street with bagfuls of vanilla pods, maple syrup and creme brulee. It remained lively with fig and peach giving out to toasted banana bread, and fruit scones. ‘Old Spice’ aftershave mingled in the finish, still plenty of pep in this pensioner.

    Drinking tip: When you fancy something unusual
