SMWS 100.14 -Boozy basil blueberryThe nose has lemon and peach, and a hint of vanilla. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has peach, raspberry, and then chilli peppers. The finish is short - lemon and vanilla.

Water brings out thick whorling that rapidly expands into brief mottling. The nose gains white pepper and a hint of mint leaves. The body gains pineapple and mint leaves, and the white pepper is a little reduced. The finish gains pineapple.

A decent dram but too spicy for me.
