SMWS Advent Day 15
29th August 2006, 307 bottles, refill bourbon
Nose - Simple and sweet, with a lightly herbal, vegetal note - hedge and celery. There's also clotted cream, cold marble and a little kola kubes, and that kind of meaty cereal note from a whisky taken too soon.
Body - Nutty, astringent, sour and little bit of brett-y beer. Green apple at the sides of the mouth. A little coffee chocolate with water.
Finish- Medium and hot, with hazelnuts and a touch of caraway. Chilli heat with water.
This does have some depth, some interest but it barely moves the needle.
