    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour:  Toffee
    gold 

    The nose had a dusty quality, suggesting pepper, straw,
    icing sugar and sanded wood; also a freshly glued balsa model; spiced apple
    strudel, lychee, glacé cherries and banana chips with good sweetness (toffee,
    candy floss, Demerara). The unreduced taste was sweet heat – banana toffee,
    Caramac, butterscotch, caramel sauce, brown sugar and chocolate powder on
    cappuccino; heat coming from pink peppercorn, cinnamon and clove. In reduction,
    the nose found cinder toffee and almond biscuits, while the palate reached a
    tasty bitter-sweet balance of dark chocolate and icing sugar. ‘Sugar and spice
    and all things nice’ from the only Highland grain distillery.

    Drinking tip: Could be served between courses at dinner –
    e.g. preparing the mouth for dessert. Be careful with the water.
