    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Bullion horde

    Flavour Profile: Spicy & sweet

    Restrained, but attractively well-rounded, the nose
    suggested caramel wafers, Demerara crunch, honey waffles and rum-soaked fruit
    cake, with hints of orange blossom and balsa wood. The palate gave us maple
    pecan cinnamon Danish, Stollen, honey, pencil shavings and warm spice
    after-tingles (ginger, clove, mulled wine). The reduced nose sweetened up even
    more – gulab jamun, icing sugar, chalky sweets – but with herbal and savoury
    elements as well (menthol, peppermint, apricot and pistachio stuffing). The
    palate was now a comforting balance of syrup and honey-glazed carrot sweetness,
    with gentle spices and mild wood tannins supplying the inner structure and
    backbone – very satisfying indeed.

    Drinking Tip: While concocting something in the kitchen.
