    Original description of SMWS

    Lychees and blooming currants Have you ever wondered what would happen if you made a speyside with dewed malt? Here is the answer! The distillery is located on the A9 at Daviot, just before Inverness, and is said to be the largest in Scotland with its 23 fuel cans, but has never produced at full capacity. This malt belongs to a group of experimental barrels, which we managed to get hold of. The whisky is pale golden with a sweet, fruity nose - lychees in syrup. In addition, pears in syrup, white grapes, French lime syrup - with a slightly oily note in the background. The taste at full strength is clean and as sweet as saccharine, with lime "Sirop" and a hint of peat moss. Water brings out blooming currants and intensifies the slightly vegetable oil, which is latent in natural starch. The currant blossoms also come out in sweet, pleasant taste - delicious! Only in the long lime-bitter finish is surprisingly fragrant smoke, followed by a hint of creosote in the aftertaste.
