SMWS 46.51 - A tapestry of flavourThe nose has fresh oak, pineapple, Turkish Delight and lemon. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has pineapple, lemon and a herbal note (sage?). The finish is long - pine, pineapple and lemon.

Water brings out thin, rapidly expanding whorling that settles into brief mottling. The nose now gains hints of fennel, and more pineapple. The body gains pine and fennel. The finish also gains the fennel.

A great dram with maltesers...
