SMWS 36.152 'A well-perfumed wee brute' 2007 / 11 years old 58.9%
Product Description

Region: Speyside

Strength: 58.9%

Volume: 700ml

SMWS Tasting notes: A garden scented perfume noted the panel at first. Followed by jasmine tea, beef stock cubes, bay leaf and a good quality VSOP Armagnac. The sense of old wood on a hot day. Water gives up warm cinnamon, an un-struck matchstick and a sweet and savoury balance - like a rich cranberry gravy. A green and flora scent lingers in the background, like daffodils in full bloom. In the mouth it arrives cleanly with a syrupy texture and flavours of madeira wine, dunnage and rosewater. A heady, intoxicating and dense dram. A touch of water and it reveals liquorice, burnt orange cake and a drying lychee aspect.
