SMWS 26.122 - Waxy for shoreThe nose has lemon, vanilla and icing sugar with a little hint of candle wax. The mouthfeel is thin with a little cling. The body has lemon, lime, peaches, lots of vanilla, and then a little wax. The finish has lemon and wax.

Water brings out thin, compact whorling that dissipates quickly. The nose gains peaches and loses some of the vanilla. The body gains a little more lime and a hint of liquorice. The finish gains a little lime.

A summer day dram.

Technical score: 3.5/5

Personal preference: I'd like a bottle.
