    • Nose
      Sweet and malty, a lot of dried green tea leaves, a bit shy and restrained, some old Speyside citrus fruits.
    • Taste
      Strong, orange liquor and marmalade, caramel, a lot of mints.
    • Finish
      A lot of bitter herbs, very fresh

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Sahara sunset
    Flavour: Spicy & dry This was initially a very ‘clean’ nose with aromas of
    coconut soap, liquid beeswax with pure turpentine and a silver polish dip.
    Deeper notes arrived quickly and descriptors of creamy rice pudding, rum and
    raisin ice cream as well as sweet porridge with almonds. The taste neat
    reminded some of clove panna cotta with fresh figs whilst others of sweet
    Moroccan couscous with raisins, almonds and Argan oil. Careful when adding
    water; aromas of a nutmeg spiced flavoured coffee, banana milk shake and
    elderflower juice are rounded off by almond milk and crème brulee with citrus,
    cardamom and star anise.

    Drinking tip: We all agreed best enjoyed neat
