SMWS 50.90 - Apple-Calvados FruitcakeThe nose has red apples, apricots, cherries, raisins and Calvados. The mouthfeel is thin, with little cling. The body has mango, green apples, oranges, and a little banana. The finish is red apples and cinnamon.

Water brings out thin whorling that vanishes quickly. The nose has gained pineapple. The body has gained smooth sweet caramel. The finish also gains caramel.

A lovely smooth dram, one for long evenings catching up with old friends.
