SMWS Panel Notes Aromas of a distant wood fire on the beach combined with mellow Virginia tobacco having that typical touch of grassiness and earthiness alongside citrus and a slight floral note. On the palate neat we enjoyed “Bloody Mary oysters” – fresh, salty, spicy with a hint of sweetness. When we added water, we stepped into the room the morning after – the air filled with the aroma of empty whisky glasses once filled with peaty whisky and sweet cigar smoke. Oh, what a great night it was surrounded by friends!
After 11 years in an ex-bourbon barrel, we transferred this whisky into a barrel which previously matured whisky from SMWS distillery number 3.
