    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Shiny copper

    Flavour Profile: Old & dignified

    The aromas neat were all very attractive and popular with the panel members; raspberry ripple ice cream, brandy snaps, caramel wafers, Key lime pie, salted toffee sauce and sour pineapple refresher chew bars. The flavours were all very moreish; sweet and salty popcorn, beef noodle cup-a-soup, Maggi liquid seasoning and memories of those sachets containing flavoured powder to sprinkle over your crisps. Water transported us into a trendy hair salon; wet hair, wet towels, bleach, perfumed shampoo and plenty of hairspray serving fresh tangerine juice, Parma Violet Spritz cocktails and Margaritas in a salted rimmed glass with slice of lime.

    Drinking Tip: Getting ready for a beach party
