    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Antique oak

    Flavour Profile: Peated

    The nose evoked the smouldering remains of a bonfire of
    sherry-butt staves – ash, wood and wine – it also put us in the mood for a
    coffee break – flavoured coffee, After Eights, gingerbread and maple pecan
    Danish. The palate etched our tongues with substantial sweet peat smoke,
    aniseed, butterscotch and sugary espresso dregs – elegant yet powerful – a tiny
    troop of ballet dancers pirouetting on our taste-buds, leaving spiral traces of
    smoky cicatrisation. The reduced nose suggested scorched coconut, caraway
    crackers, liquorice and metal snuff boxes. The palate had become a sweet,
    smoky, herbal, honey spice box – first-rate fun and exceptional balance.

    Drinking Tip: A dram to enhance a coffee break by a log
    fire.
