SMWS 46.40 - Sweet, fruity and aromaticThe nose has honeycomb, pears, mango and pineapple. The mouthfeel is decent with a little cling. The body has mango, watermelon, peaches and then vanilla and toffee. The finish is mango and hints of oak.

Water brings out tight, thin whorling that lingers for a while but doesn't mottle. The nose loses the honeycomb and gains a little oak. The body gains more fruit, and loses the toffee. The finish is also fruitier.

A really great dram, full of fruit - one for a summer’s evening.
