    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Light glinting bronze 

    A sweet, buttery nose (Battenberg, toffee, vanilla, popcorn,
    lemon puffs, brandy snaps) but also light spice, perfume, old shoe brushes and
    garden benches – it caught our interest like a fisherman’s fly might catch a
    sleepy trout. The palate’s immediate impression was big sweetness (dark toffee,
    Demerara, vanilla cream, maple syrup, buttered scones) but given time and
    patient probing, we found woody cinnamon spice and nice nuttiness (toasted
    almonds, coconut). With water, the nose was like walking into a patisserie,
    while the taste developed sugary coffee dregs, soft caramel, fudge and
    pistachios. An inviting, voluptuous offering from our most northerly grain
    distillery.

    Drinking Tip: One to linger over patiently – like fishing a
    highland river. Could take an ice cube on balmy summer’s evenings.
