  2. mandragoru did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS tasting notes:The nose was straightforwardly fruity – apple pie, apricot tart, pear and sweet citrus (lemon cheesecake, kiwi, gooseberry), with some vanilla and toffee complexity creeping in. It was much more multifaceted with water – barber shop leather and Afghan coats, cinnamon swirls and pine needles all joined the fruit (Key lime pie, mojitos, jelly babies). The neat palate was sweet, tart and drying – apple pie, ice-cream and syrup against sharp fruits, bitter lemon, quinine and some spice (cinnamon, anise, nutmeg, clove). In reduction, it was still sweet but juicier – lime cordial and pineapple, with tannic walnut dryness only appearing towards the end

    DRINKING TIP: Summer-time dram – maybe with ice – or to spark you up before going out.
