SMWS 73.70 - Frivolously fresh, with playful spices


Uafhængig aftapper:SMWS - Scottish Malt Whisky Society


Omtalt i Outturn maj 2015:

The nose was frivolously fresh – light fruit cocktail, floral notes and deeper hints of ginger, tobacco, linseed oil and fennel seeds (one panellist was in a dry cleaners opening a pack of menthol cigarettes). The palate was sweet and gingery (cake, biscuits) with some other spices too (nutmeg, cinnamon) and sweet fruitiness (apple strudel, mandarin flan, peaches, pineapple). The reduced nose seemed fresher – but still sweet and fruity (honey, melon, vanilla, toffee apples – someone suggested the tea-room at the Botanic Gardens). Even with water the palate had a pleasant, sweet, viscous mouth-feel – sticky toffee pudding, sugary dried fruits and Christmas cake.
