SMWS 80.7The nose has banana, coconut, vanilla and a little cinnamon. The mouthfeel is thin with little cling. The body has an interesting softness - coconut, vanilla, red apples and a little banana. The finish is slight and short - vanilla?

Water brings out tight, thick whorling that lingers for a while as it spreads slowly. The nose has lost the cinnamon, but gained a little peach. The body has gained some white grape and a little peach and apricot. The finish gains a little peach and banana.

A superb dram for a spring morning.
