    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Roe deer

    Flavour Profile: Spicy & sweet

    On the nose neat it was dark, dense and sweet like
    a    mocha cake with a balsamic strawberry whipped cream
    filling, chocolate icing and topped with crunchy toasted hazelnuts. A lot less
    sweet on the palate, still dark and sticky but now more like a prune and date
    cake or spicy oven-roasted plums seasoned with cloves and allspice and toasted
    almonds sprinkled on top. Water released bitter orange, liquorice, chocolate
    covered prunes and a touch of wax. A lot more herbal now to taste like a
    Jagertee - strong black tea, red wine, plum brandy, over-proof dark
    rum and plenty of spices. 

     Drinking Tip: When you get home after a long day out
    and about
