Official SMWS Panel Tasting Notes:
The power of imagination – one panellist was juggling pineapples and coconuts on a shifting drift of grist; another lounged on a summer hillside, smelling bracken, gorse, rose and sunscreen, a cinnamon raisin bun in one hand and some old bourbon in the other. The palate was mouth-wateringly, lip-smackingly delish – brown sugar, chocolate oranges, Belgian waffles and coffee – all bathed in a sunshiny shimmer of satisfaction.
The reduced nose discovered honey-coated nuts, elderflower, orange cupcakes, rhubarb and creamy vanilla. The palate’s yummy scrummy sapidity conveyed juicy, fruity, floral flavours, chamomile tea and lime flowers, milk bottle sweets and barley sugars – ‘Excellent!’
