    N: The nose takes me through the mill house and on to the malting and brewing rooms, such is it’s production lucidity. It’s all nicely honeyed too and could well be sweet to taste. Furthermore there are notes of Shreddies, tomato Wheat Crunchies, a touch of Worcestershire sauce, plenty of honey comb and yeast flakes - so theres an ‘Honest John’ character to this.
    T: It IS sweet, honey-sweet and leaning towards a sugary malt [a la Clynelish Boisdale WB]. The grainy-wort profile creeps out slowly yet surely to establish a firm cereal led, sweet, well aged/matured form.
    F: Finishes with a honeyed/cereal body, though one that gets really peppery and with some chilli heat.
    C: Certainly a decent session dram. The finish is intense.

    SMWS tasting notes:

    It was a lazy day in the garden as we relaxed on the freshly cut grass, sheltering from the warming sun in the shade of the green apple and eucalyptus trees. To one side was a colourful flowerbed accompanied by a small stream that trickled over large pebbles, whilst to the other grew a comprehensive herb garden. We set about unpacking juicy pears, mango, ripe pineapple and candied red apples to go with spiced fruitcake topped with vanilla butter icing and dusty white icing sugar. More sweeties followed with candied grapes, milk chocolate and meringue with vanilla custard and orange blossom honey.

    DRINKING TIP: Drink whilst enjoying the perfect lazy summer’s afternoon.
