SMWS 71.48 - Follow the yellow brick roadThe nose has lovely floral notes, along with mango and hints of toffee. The mouthfeel is thin with a little cling. The body has more of the mango, and then some green apple and a hint of rose garden. The finish is long with mango and roses.

Water brings out thin, rapidly expanding whorling that settles into brief mottling. The nose now gains rose petals and green apple. The body gains toffee and hints of lemon. The finish gains a little green apple.

A wonderful dram for bright autumn mornings.
