SMWS 9.122 - Daisy chainThe nose has meadows in flower, lemon sherbet and vanilla. The mouthfeel is thin, very smooth with no cling. The body has vanilla, lemon sherbet and honey - but is quiet. The finish is lemon sherbet hints.

Water brings out thick, rapidly expanding whorling that settles quickly into brief mottling. The nose now gains hints of jelly tots. The body also gains hints of fruit jellies, and is much more present. The finish gains hints of fruit.

A summer's day dram, for mad dogs and Englishmen in the midday sun.
