    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Ghostly gold 
    Flavour: Lightly peated The nose had tiny traces of smoke; two panellists imagined a
    ship chandlery (rope, wood, tar) and one remembered Millport’s country and
    western weekend (tents, straw bales, trampled grass, sea breezes). The palate
    was salty and sweet (popcorn, marshmallows, raspberry cranachan with burnt
    oats); liquorice and aniseed drew comments like ‘A big boy’s dram’, ‘Ballsy’
    and ‘Chewing Long John Silver’s wooden leg’. The reduced nose found lobster
    creels, unlit beach bonfires and ‘Victoria sponge in an engine room’. The
    palate became much sweeter with water (jam, whipped cream on hot chocolate),
    while still retaining threads of smoke and salty Hebridean tingles.

    Drinking Tip: On a beach – or a boat.
