    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Peach gold
    Flavour profile: Spicy & sweet

    Sweet aromas dominated the nose neat; gummy bears, jelly
    beans, chewy caramel candies, honey, custard cream biscuits and barley sugar
    sticks. The taste surprised us all with plenty of pepper and a sandal wood
    spiciness to start with. A very oily texture and that tingling’ chilli
    spiciness with time had a slightly sweet fruitiness coming through which
    reminded some of a pink peppercorn and grapefruit Margarita. Water released
    vanilla custard slices, glazed apricot Danish and Madagascan white chocolate
    mice and the flavours were now comforting, slightly woody with still some
    spice, just like a cup of Masala Chai spiced tea.

    Drinking tip: Walking on the beach on a warm autumn day
