SMWS 96.18 - The Harvesters by BruegelThe nose has lemongrass, lemon sherbet, haystacks and a hint of coconut. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has lemon, toffee, marzipan and hints of floral bouquets. The finish is short but sweet - lemon with hints of toffee and floral notes.

Water brings out thin, compact whorling that dissipates quickly. The nose gains more lemongrass and some hints of pine needles. The body gains pine and more toffee, and loses the marzipan. The finish gains more floral notes and toffee.

A moreish, sweet dram that I'd like to have on a spring afternoon after a shower has passed by.
