SMWS 36.125 - Curiosity dramThe nose has "meadow fresh" fabric conditioner, lavender, and hints of vanilla. The mouthfeel is thin with a little cling. The body has balsa wood, raisins, hay and hints of tobacco pouches. The finish is sweet with more lavender.

Water brings out thin, rapidly expanding whorling that settles into brief mottling. The nose loses some of the grassiness, and the body gains cinnamon. The finish also gains cinnamon.

An interesting dram, although I'm confused as to why it's in spicy and dry!
