    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Buffed mahogany

    Flavour profile: Deep, rich & dried fruits

    Imagine a feasting table set with sweet mashed potato with butter, rye bread with beef dripping, figs and balsamic and hoppy IPA to wash it down. Deserts of chocolate and ginger, spiced treacle tart and sticky toffee pudding served with lashings of Turkish espresso. To taste, a knuckle of lamb with a wine jus, pork crackling and beef soppet (cooked juices), then curiously Bonjela and cola cubes. Water reminded the panel of Bovril broth and roasted pumpkin. A bathroom cupboard with talcum powder, violet fresh towels and shaving foam on the nose and walnuts and Jaffa cakes on the final taste.

    Drinking Tip: Better neat. Just get on with it!
