    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Bling

    Flavour: Lightly peated

    Pata Negra jamon to start – Spanish prosciutto – then a
    perfumed scent (rose, dried rosemary?), with a hint of white wine and a pack of
    cigarettes; then ‘coastal’ and ‘garden party’ (What?! ‘cucumber and cream
    cheese sandwiches on a damp day’!). Water brings up its more usual
    characteristics of hemp ropes, leather bikers’ jackets (‘Triumph, not Harley’),
    and barbecue (‘char-grilled eggplant with rosemary’). The taste is sweet and
    ‘old-fashioned’ at natural strength, with guy ropes (lightly tarred), tobacco
    and bruschetta; water sweetens the taste, holds the hemp and lingers pleasantly
    in an old-fashioned way.

    Drinking Tip: For the hip-flask at a wedding
