    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Tangerine dreams at midnight
    Flavour: Deep, rich & dried fruits

    The nose was immediately floral and exotic – a heady mix of honeysuckle, night-scented stock and pea-pods with Bourneville chocolate, old tobacco boxes, Brazil nuts, smouldering cinnamon incense and brown sugar on pineapple and papaya. The palate also had a silky, perfumed, exotic character – combining gingerbread heat with cooling menthol; then further flavours of rosewater, coffee, coconut, chocolate truffles and enticing Moroccan spices. With water, warm Danish pastries with raisins and cherries wafted past the nose, while the palate became more deeply Moroccan – preserved lemons, apricots, sultanas, orange peel and warm spice – rewarding, cheering and beautifully tasty.

    Drinking tip: With a Moroccan feast – or while watching Casablanca with a few members of your harem.
