    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Light, bright amber
    Flavour profile: Old & dignified

    What an amazing myriad of aromas, too many to mention them
    all, let’s give it a bash! Marzipan, nutmeg, orange oil, old vintage Armagnac,
    parmesan shavings, salty creamy blue cheese, buttery shortbread and Chinese
    crispy sugary and salty seaweed. On the palate, we stay in Asia; sesame
    Teriyaki chicken salad and vegetable tempura with a soya dipping sauce. With
    water, we enjoyed a salad Nicoise with a perfect vinaigrette dressing on a
    yacht off the south of France – c’est magnifique! After 34 years in an
    ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this whisky directly into a Sauternes cask
    for the remainder of its maturation.

    Drinking tip: Celebrate Life
