    N: Nicely oaked and creamy/milky/cream-cheese, sweet & sour with plenty of peat in the mix - a peatiness nearing Ardmore levels. There’s some acute saltiness too, a touch of vegemite, sweet tamari>plum sauce, roasted carrots, sweet potatoes,... Though rather quiet at first, more & more char is revealed over time.
    T: Crisp and tidy arrival of fresh allium peat in the main. Adding water brings a favourable compliment of salty sweetness. Good balance and form throughout.
    F: Allium-peat & bitter char towards the tail. Concludes clean & spirity with mild peaty smoke.
    C: I like this a lot and yet i can't get the new official 15yo bottling WB from the Loch Lomond group out of my mind - it’s the cask character that bowled me over with that one. Blog.

    SMWS tasting notes:

    We sat in a waterfront restaurant in Key Largo reading ‘The Old Man and the Sea’ whilst waiting for our meal. The smell of tamarind and honey marinated prawns as well as blackened alligator bites and crab stuffed grouper fillets made us all very hungry indeed. Let’s tuck in; smoked mussel salad followed by caramelised pulled beef brisket in a rich spicy sauce with sweet chilli jam on the side for an extra kick. After a drop of water, a clean car mechanic (smell of Swarfiga and creosote) took the table next to us eating pork ribs in a smoky barbeque sauce.

    DRINKING TIP: Whilst reading a classic book or restoring a classic car
