SMWS 11.35 - Black bun and Black MagicThe nose has syrup sponge cake, toffee and honeyed notes with a hint of icing sugar. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has toffee and caramel with a little hint of polished wood. The finish is short - just toffee.

Water brings out tight, thin, rapidly expanding whorling that dissipates very quickly. The nose gains linseed oil and vanilla, and a touch of citrus. The body gains lemon and more of the polished wood. The finish gains lemon.

A very nice dram for spring evenings with friends.
