SMWS Advent Day 19
29 years old, Armagnac barrel
Body - Zippy and fizzing, sherbet lemons and a weirdly plasticky fruitiness (because it's Armagnac not whisky), with candied peel, jelly orange slices and Tang powder.
Finish - Long and still fizzing, lots of tannins and huge quantities of citrus fruits. Very long actually, and it tastes like eating an entire roll of wine gums.
This is a robust but thrilling spirit, and that finish is just wonderful. It’s still available here.
