SMWS Panel Notes
For a refill cask there is a surprising initial hit of fresh oak, Juicy Fruit chewing gum and dried banana chips. Lots of mango, pineapple, apple schnapps and fresh pears. Additional notes of toffee and coconut husk pop up as well. A wonderfully attractive aroma so far.
With water the age starts to show and there’s polished wood, dusty library books, dried exotic fruits and hints of pine forest petrichor and coconut oils. In the mouth there’s a massive wave of fruity intensity. Bold and mature beyond its years. Rancio, gentle waxiness, hot buttered scones, barley sugars, ginger sweets and hay lofts. Reduction evolves things towards honey and lemon tea, caramelised oatmeal, Belgian waffles drizzled with golden syrup and pink wafer biscuits. Marvellous stuff!
