    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: The pinnacle of a compass
    Flavour: Heavily peated

    The panel found Florence tending to her patients in a
    wartime camp hospital on a beach with ozone and engine smoke blowing on the
    breeze. Wintergreens and white daisies. A tangle of lobster pots and crab
    shells. Sweet lime posset and crushed mint. Her paraffin lamp gave off puffs of
    sooty smoke illuminating her honest face. A sip of water to her lips revealed a
    more buxom character with musky perfume behind her ears. Salt cured gammon,
    ribs and shellfish. Florence fluttered her lashes at a grubby mechanic while
    warming her hands at his flaming forge. Sweet dreams soldiers.
