    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Starfish gold

    Flavour: Peated

    From the word go descriptors for the aromas neat came flooding in; salty fish boxes, seaweed, beach bonfire, medicinal, Elastoplast, lint, antiseptic but also wet sand and freshly grilled salmon. To taste like sitting right next to a smoldering charcoal barbecue; hot, smoky and ashy with a sweet note of honey glazed ham and langoustines being grilled. Adding water, leathery and medicinal like a doctor’s bag as well as salty old ropes but also very sweet; brown sugar, molasses and vanilla pods. The taste, emptying last night’s catch in the harbour with a Fisherman’s Friend lozenge in your mouth. No surprise then that the whisky from this distillery was the only one allowed to be sold over the counter during US prohibition as ‘Medicinal Spirit’.

    Drinking Tip: Whilst watching or playing beach volleyball
