    SMWS tasting notes: On the nose neat it was dark, dense and sweet like amocha cakewith abalsamic strawberry whippedcream filling, chocolate icing and topped with crunchytoasted hazelnuts. A lot less sweet on the palate, still dark and sticky but now more like aprune and date cakeorspicy oven-roastedplumsseasoned with cloves and allspice and toasted almonds sprinkled on top. Water released bitter orange, liquorice,chocolate covered prunesand a touch of wax. A lot more herbal now to taste like aJagertee; strong black tea, red wine, plum brandy, over-proof dark rum and plenty of spices.
    Drinking tip: When you get home after a long day out and about
