    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Mahogany
    Flavour Profile: Spicy and sweet

    The nose engulfed us with drifts of molasses and thuds of
    wood (toasted oak, cinnamon) summarised by one comment – ‘Treacle buns in a
    sawmill’; brighter colours in the rainbow of sweetness included honey,
    raspberry pop-tarts and banana loaf. Adding water magically drew out the bakery
    element (Danish pastries with apricot jam and cherry, croissant with marmalade)
    and the aromatics (Christmas spice Yankee candles, pot-pourri, pumpkin pie).
    The palate, unsurprisingly, was hugely sweet (vanilla pod sugar, foamy bananas,
    corn candies, blueberry muffins, pancakes smothered in boysenberry syrup) but
    all neatly balanced by grape pip and dried cranberry tartness and warming
    wood-derived spices.

    Drinking Tip: With an all-day breakfast, which, of course,
    must include pancakes.
