Mashtun

On the nose we got floral notes with sweet honey, caramel, vanilla, spiced rum, and hints of sherried grain. Tasting this dram gave us quite a rush of flavours. There was burnt sugar, toffee, cherries, chocolate, and timber or sawdust. The finish is medium to long with marzipan, warm leather, and spiced rum. Adding water takes the edge of the alcohol, sweetens the nose, and brings out additional floral notes. This really is another fantastic dram from the SMWS and is certainly one to savour. Take your time and enjoy every drop – we did!

Overall = 74/100
