SMWS 41.87 - Punchy perfumed peach and plumThe nose has pineapple, lemon and freshly cut grass, and hints of oak. Mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has cut grass, pineapple, green apple, peach, and a hint of rosemary. The finish has rosemary and pineapple juice.

Water brings out thin whorling that expands rapidly and settles into brief mottling. The nose gains pine needles, and hints of eucalyptus, but loses the pineapple. The body has gained lime and pine needles, and loses the pineapple and green apple. The finish also gains pine needles.

A decent dram for bright winter's days.
