SMWS 121.59 - Vanilla Candles on a Polished Table

SMWS 121.59 This is a cracker of a dram that i picked up for us to have at Livingston Whisky Club and i'm so glad i did.

The name "Vanilla Candles on a Polished Table" is fantastic and totally sums it up nicely although there's also a huge fruit note in here too.


the name of this really is a great description, the initial notes are of furniture polish and fresh mahogany with freshly scraped vanilla pods touches of fresh fruit salad treacle toffee and puff candy.

fresh fruit salad with more furniture polish and scraped vanilla pods, it has quite a waxy creamy mouthfeel and a touch of tingle.

tingly and spicy with fresh fruit yumminess.
