    SMWS tasting notes: This had all the hallmarks of a well-aged, well-integrated and well-balanced dram. Plenty of delicate wood spice, honey roasted peanuts, candied walnuts but also juicy like red-fleshed Indian blood peaches, sweet nectarines and vanilla bean maple syrup –superb! Starts a little dry on the palate; but a lovely texture with cinnamon, bitter chocolate, oranges, grapefruits and back to the Indian blood peaches we also found on the nose. A drop of water and the elegant fragrance of bougainvillea and magnolia appeared next to all the aromas we had discovered neat and on the taste liquorice, mixed spice and a zesty lime finish.
    Drinking tip: Your search did bear fruit and you found this gem
