SMWS G7.11 - Simple pleasureThe nose has pencil shavings, acetone and lemon. The mouthfeel is light and clean, with no cling - almost watery, it demands to be held on the tongue. The body has sweet vanilla, lemon and hints of shortbread before a very slight ginger towards the finish. There's only a very slight finish - hints of lemon and ginger for a brief moment.

Water brings out thick, rapidly expanding whorling that lingers briefly before vanishing - no mottling. The nose now gains pine needles and banana. The body has lost the ginger but gained a banana note. The finish swaps ginger for banana.

A very light dram - one for starting lazy summer Sundays with.
