SMWS Panel Notes
The Panel found themselves in a carpenter’s workshop to begin with, one with a brylcreem machine on the wall. There followed notes of orange icing, rhubarb and custard, pollen, dandelions, wild garlic and carrot cake. A lick of eucalyptus resin also reared its head. Water rustled up some pink grapefruit, jasmine, violets, star fruit and bourbon biscuits.
The palate brought honey glazed barley, limoncello drizzled strawberry granita, lime jelly, pink wafers and rye spice. A little reduction also added chocolate orange, mojitos and a wonderful green malt note of pure pot still Irish Whiskey. A hastily assembled bouquet of wildflowers was presented in the finish.
