SMWS 70.22 - Malaga raisin ice creamThe nose has pineapple juice, green apples, and floral bouquets. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has vanilla, lemon, pineapple and green apples. The finish is green apples and lemons.

Water brings out thin, rapidly expanding whorling that lingers for a while. The nose loses the pineapple, but still has the floral and apple notes. The body gains more vanilla, and loses the pineapple. The finish is unchanged.

A lovely dram for lazing around the shade of a tree on a hot summer's day.
