    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Silvery gold 
    Flavour: Young & Spritely 

    We were greeted with sweet and malty aromas on the nose neat
    like a hot Ovaltine chocolate with vanilla flavoured soya milk over Weetabix
    cereal. Other descriptors were that of fresh sawn wood, burnt sugar and
    Scottish tablet. On the palate initially quite hot, salty and dry; ‘sucks in
    your cheeks!’ but then turning fruity; boozy cherry chocolate pie or a Peach
    Melba smoothie. With water, turning very fresh, herbal and botanical and in the
    taste an intriguing balance of saltiness and sweetness of a well prepared
    traditional margarita consisting of tequila, Cointreau and lime juice served in
    a salt rimmed glass.

    Drinking tip: Needs taming with water
