    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Ripe Barley 
    Flavour: Sweet, fruity & mellow

    Aromas of Black Forest gateau, honeycomb, toffee, caramel, apple,
    pear and candied orange and lemon led to comments such as ‘Enticing’,
    ‘Pampering’, ‘Silky soft’ and ‘Luxurious’. The palate lived up to expectations
    – pleasing, teasing and comforting – sensually sweet honey shimmied in the
    mouth with seductive splashes of exotic citrus, all embraced by fine undertones
    of avuncular oak. The reduced nose turned more tropical – tinned pineapple,
    mango, peach, candied angelica and marmalade balanced the milk chocolate and
    Danish pastry sweetness. The extraordinary palate, with hints of nutmeg, baked
    apple and sophisticated citric peel left us all feeling calmed and delighted.

    Drinking Tip: When you need a haven in a heartless world.
