smws truly a fairy tale

Appearance – This whisky is wet straw/lemon in colour, it beads up on the swirl line, and has thin legs.

Nose – That’s another good ABV, there’s a light bbq meat note, a little musty, stoned fruits, peaches and apricots, candied lemon slices, feels lighter flavour wise. There’s also a hand rolling tobacco note, royal icing, and furniture polish. I’m also getting maltiness and quite a bit of oak as time goes by.

Palate – It’s lovely and fruity, stoned fruits and pineapple, malty and cereal, it has a lovely mouthfeel, and white pepper spice.

Finish – the finish is very long, it’s quite intense and warming, with white pepper, sweet lemon, royal icing, and it’s a little drying.

My thoughts – I thoroughly enjoyed this whisky, it may be reasonably young, and of a higher than usual ABV, but it’s a super drop, that doesn’t taste or nose as high as the ABV is.

Would i buy a bottle? – I certainly would, it has plenty of character in my opinion, and i certainly enjoyed it.

Notes – This whisky is natural coloured and non chill filtered.
