SMWS 135.12 'Juicy yet mouth-drying' 2006 / 12 years old 60%
Product Description

Region: Highland

Strength: 60%

Volume: 700ml

SMWS Tasting notes: On the nose the smoke was subtle and distant - the impression was of gooseberry fool, Haribos, toffee and petits fours in plastic dishes on a polished wooden counter. The palate was a satisfying blend of sweetness (watermelon sweets, blackcurrant travel sweets) light spice (clove, nutmeg, peppery nasturtium) and gentle smoke and ash. The reduced nose took us to an outdoor holiday swimming pool, with singed sacking, cigar ash, biscotti and lime marmalade. On the reduced palate, the attractive sweetness started to encompass hints of exotic fruits (star-fruit, papaya, mango sorbet) - followed by a dry, tickling finish of smoke and spice.

Cask: First Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel
Outturn: 192
