SMWS tasting notes:
The nose teased us with sweet peat-smoke and seaweed, delicious cranachan and limoncello chocolate and then the aromatic intrigue of citric-scented candles and floral incense sticks in a hippie shop. The palate was a curious mix of salty seaside flavours (seaweed, beach pebbles, toasted marshmallows, salt-water taffy) with lime, flowers and smoke – like a female hippie beachcomber’s jumper. The reduced nose evoked kelp and lavender in a glass of gin and a driftwood beach bonfire (that beachcomber again). By the time we got to the reduced palate, she was sipping oysters drizzled with lime – the prelude to a complete shellfish platter.
