SMWS 36.69 - Totally Tropical, Man!
Tasted at the February Outurn preview night at the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society this is the 36.69 - Totally Tropical, Man!
The first dram of the evening is usually always one that goes down well and this is no different, lots of lovely fruitiness, a syrupy creamy consistency in the mouthfeel and lovely soft oak notes, this was actually my dram of the night although others did suggest some Welly boots on the nose and palate there was nothing there for me.
Interestingly this distillery is one i tend not to enjoy normally so it is a great joy to have really liked this one.
the first and strongest note in here for me was fruit salad chewy sweets, gentle fruitiness it's got some definite very fresh citrus notes with crunchy green appls and some gentle oak leaf sauce
theres a soft and gentle woodiness, oak leaf sauce and tree sap, with vanilla and a hint of the fruit salad chews and a hint of pepper
very creamy and fruity lovely mouthcoating
