SMWS 66.103 - A thing of rough beautyThe nose has TCP, sea air and just a finished barbecue, with just a hint of honeycomb. The mouthfeel is thin with a little cling. The body has more of the TCP, fudge, hessian sacks and a lot of smoke! The finish has smoke and fudge.

Water brings out thin, short lived whorling that barely mottles before dissipating. The nose has gained brown sugar and fudge but lost a little of the sea air. The body has gained more fudge, and the finish is longer and more intense but has the same flavours.

A shoreline dram for warm days.
