SMWS 36.136 - Fruity tang spangleThe nose has green apple, toffee, honey, and hints of pineapple. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has pineapple, green apple, and ginger. The finish is short - ginger and pineapple.

Water brings out thin whorling that expands into decent mottling. The nose gains more apple and honey, and loses some of the pineapple. The body gains more apple and some hints of wax, but loses some of the pineapple. The finish is waxy, with ginger and green apple.

A lovely dram for autumnal evenings - maybe watch sundown at the equinox with this one?
