Full SMWS Tasting Notes & Video
A real beauty – waxed lemons, white chocolate, fudge sundae, spearmint, ripe red apples, honey, hints of virgin olive oil, salty sea spray and a wisp of smoke. Viscous, oily and fresh on the palate with toasted wood, polished oak, oranges and kiwis and in the finish, one of the classic cocktails, the epitome of a summer drink – a Daiquiri.
After the addition of water – freshly sliced lemons, sunflower oil, yoghurt-coated raisins and plenty of wax; beeswax, paraffin wax, palm wax and coconut wax. The taste was like a stress relieving, deep inhalation of fresh mountain air filled with lavender, heather and Scots pine.
