    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Winter sunset

    Flavour Profile: Sweet, fruity & mellow

    Seventeen years in a refill barrel before finishing in Sauternes
    gave this a delightful nose – aromatic and heady – full of floral perfumes
    (sweet peas, freesias) and tropical fruits (Tooty Frooties, fruit pastilles,
    jam donut) with some varnished wood. The palate was lip-smacking and
    tongue-tickling – mainly sweet and fruity (pineapple cake, brown sugar on pink
    grapefruit, candied lemon, pick-n-mix) but with floral notes and playful, tingling
    woody spices at the end. The reduced nose found pavlova and sherbet lemons –
    comments included ‘warm and inviting’ and ‘my kind of whisky!’ The palate was
    sweetly succulent, with juicy melons and ‘dessert trolleys going by’.

    Drinking tip: In a Jacuzzi, dreaming of tropical beaches.
