    Initially it's very closed, it needs a few weeks before it starts to open up. If you don't have the patience for that, add some water, and it'll start to open up.

    Apart from that, it's a nice, gentle, fruity dram, and for the money it's not bad.
    Some green apples, lots of vanilla, a bit of wood, white sugar, hint of mint, and yes, some melon in the background.
    But there's so many like it out there, there's nothing special about it as such.
    It suffers, unfortunately, from SMWS-itis, i.e. tastes like too many of their other bottlings, which they're flooding us, the members, with.
