SMWS 100.16 - Classic cranberry CosmoThe nose has mango, melon, passion fruit and cinnamon. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has passion fruit, lime, and cinnamon. The finish is short - passion fruit and cinnamon.

Water brings out thin, rapidly expanding whorling that quickly settles into brief mottling. The nose gains a floral note, and loses the cinnamon. The body gains ginger and candied oranges. The finish gains a little cinnamon.

An interesting dram, a little too spicy for me - maybe for a summer garden party?
