    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Runny honey

    Flavour Profile: Juicy, oak & vanilla

    Like enjoying the left over cake mix, this is a sweet treat
    for the senses. Dried sultanas, candied orange peel, brown sugar and pineapple
    dusted with icing sugar mixed with melted butter, cinnamon and nutmeg. Layers
    of desiccated coconut and fragrant lavender bush mingled with a fresh
    peppermint zing along with eucalyptus leaves and chewy mint toffees. Perhaps on
    the varnished oak table there was a refreshing glass of pina colada. Then a
    long lasting rich and buttery texture like warm croissants with lovely firm
    tannins giving structure towards the end with a spicy hint of white pepper.

    Drinking Tip: When spending Christmas in the Carribean.
