    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Silvery, sylvan gold
    Flavour Profile: Young & spritely

    The nose had vanilla ice-cream, apple, honey and milk chews,
    but what caught our attention were floral fragrances of heather, lavender and
    elderflower, gardens after rain and sea breezes over the vernal machair. The
    neat taste was intense, sharp and mouth-drawing, but clean – with flavours of
    light smoke, lots of citrus, rock-pools and parma violets – nice! The reduced
    nose ranged from sherbet straws to salted sweet potato fries – but the
    landscape evoked was gentle smoke drifting over the machair (thyme, bog myrtle,
    wild flowers) and sun on granite outcrops. The palate was lovely, fresh and
    sharp – smoke, salt, apple and lime.

    Drinking tip:  Best
    enjoyed in the company of seagulls on a cliff top somewhere, looking out to
    sea.
