SMWS 35.194 - A composition in woodThe nose is somewhat closed - tobacco and butterscotch, with wood hints. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has ginger, woody notes and blackcurrant. The finish is ginger and butterscotch.

Water brings out thin, rapidly expanding whorling that dissipates quickly. The nose gains tea chests and loses the butterscotch. The body gains tea chests and eucalyptus hints, and loses the blackcurrant. The finish is ginger and tea chests, with no butterscotch.

A dram for winter mornings.
