SMWS Panel Notes
Initial aromas bee lined towards sweet and nutty domains as layers of praline sat on top of a thick wedge of marzipan. Fresh grape juice thickened into fruit jelly as pine cones beckoned the earthier hints of a forest floor before turning to soft leather.
The texture was viscous and chewy with the sweet mouth feel of hazelnut oil. Blood orange combined with porcini mushrooms to give an autumnal sense snuggling in a thick blanket whilst sipping on a glass of whisky liqueur. The finish had sustained character, venturing again through honey, nuts and finally settling on fresh ginger marmalade on malt loaf.
