    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Wilted primrose
    Flavour profile: Peated

    The nose took us to a beach bonfire – peat smoke, heather,
    gorse, salty sea air and moules marinières – but one panellist had his own
    barbeque in a hospital car-park. With water, we imagined coal-tar, liquorice
    and teriyaki-glazed ribs, an Islay High Street in winter and Dick Van Dyke’s
    chimney-sweep cap. The neat palate was enormous – deep smoke, chewy dark
    toffee, mechanics overalls, a disinfected operating theatre, hints of farmyard
    and pork and apple sausages roasting on a smoky barbeque. The reduced palate –
    liquorice and clove confectionery – sweet but dangerous (like Mary Poppins!) –
    and all enjoyed down-wind of an Islay pagoda.

    Drinking tip: At a beach bonfire – or while watching a
    certain movie.
