SMWS G7.2 (Girvan 27 yo 1984/2011)

SMWS G7.2 (Girvan 27 yo 1984/2011)

2011, SMWS
Single grain - Lowlands
60.3% ABV

Nose: Lemons, raisins, cream, honey, fresh bread, popcorn, hints of salt caramel. With water, fresher, pears, marshmallows.
Mouthfeel: Light body, airy, evaporates quickly.
Tasting: Sweet salty. Lemons, raisins, honey, salt caramel, popcorn, vanilla, hints of cherries, hints of sandalwood. With water, saltier, peanuts, vanilla, more sandalwood.
Finish: Long. Salt caramel, lemon zest, honey, vanilla.


Incredibly fragrant neat, and a little hard to drink. Upon adding a little water, it opens up a bit, but remains confusing. The diluted nose is sweet, airy flavours of pears, marshmallows and cream, but in the mouth, it is salty and nutty and covered in sandalwood. Interesting grain.


I like this.
