SMWS 63.37 - Coconut-cherry-chocolate chip ice creamThe nose has mango flavoured chew sweets and icing sugar. The mouthfeel is thin and astringent, with no cling. The body has vanilla, then more fruit - mango, grapefruit and lemon. The finish is short with vanilla and mango.

Water brings out thin, rapidly expanding whorling that dissipates quickly without mottling. The nose now loses some of the vanilla, but not the mango. The body has gained cinnamon which builds towards the finish, which is still short but dominated by cinnamon.

A dram for a hip flask and spring walks.
