    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Lion’s mane

    Flavour Profile: Spicy & sweet

    A lovely warm sweet nose greeted the Panel like a hot cup of
    spiced apple tea with star anise, ginger root and cardamom served with a lemon
    meringue pie. Spicy and sweet on the palate; plenty of ground cloves and
    aniseed, combined with candied mint leaves and lemon peel. Water brought out more
    sweetness; wine gums, juicy fruit jelly babies and a mango-vanilla coulis
    whilst the taste had the intense sweet creaminess of banana fritters with
    vanilla caramel sauce. After 12 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred
    this whisky directly into a Sauternes cask for the remainder of its maturation.

    Drinking Tip: Lazing on a sunny afternoon
