SMWS 84.24 - Mediterranean warmthThe nose is quite quiet - light and sweet, with hints of apricot, peach, pineapple, lemon and a little cedar wood. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has lime, pineapple, peaches and vanilla. The finish is sweet with vanilla, peaches and pineapple.

Water brings out thin, rapidly spreading whorling that settles quickly into lingering mottling. The nose gains a floral note, but is still fairly quiet. The body gains more lime and pineapple, and some oak shavings.

A decent autumnal dram.
