    Solid whisky but lacks depth. Not bad but also not great. Liked the soft smoke and very good smoke

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Ripening wheat fields

    Flavour profile: Lightly peated

    The nose was fresh as sea breezes; barley fields, pine
    woods, apple, mint, soap and swimming pools – with light agave syrup and Rich
    Tea biscuits; curlicues of smoke eventually became question marks. The palate
    had substantial heat, light peat smoke and pleasant fruity sweetness (pears in
    syrup, waxy fruits, marzipan); the finish detected pear skin, oak and lime
    bitterness. The reduced palate was as delicate as a princess of Lilliput; water
    added little apart from a putty note. The palate, however, achieved an
    easy-drinking mellowness that it lacked at natural strength – candy cigarettes
    and vanilla, complicated by a scintilla of salt.

    Drink tip: Before hitting the town on a Friday night.
