SMWS 123.22 - Sweet enticements - citric zingThe nose has lemon, parma violets, floral notes and a little hint of grape. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has lemon, lime, violet, and a little hint of orange zest. The finish is lemon and lime.

Water brings out thin, compact whorling that settles quickly into brief mottling. The nose gains apple flavoured sweets, and loses the grape. The body gains apple and satsumas. The finish is unchanged.

A very sweet dram - one for sunny spring afternoons.
