SMWS Advent Day 4
SMWS 84.28, Glendullan, Simple but far from dull, 9 years old, 58.9% A+
4th March 2009, refill bourbon
Nose - Fresh, waxy, spiritous but confident, with the smell of extra strong mints, some crayons and a little playdoh. Promising. A touch of swimming pool with water, a little burnt, but a real boiled sweet character too.
Body - Soft and waxy, chewed crayons now with fruit toffee, a little air freshener, fence panel, and some cherry jam. Fruitier with water and a little time, a robust but lovely delivery.
Finish - Medium, sweet and spirity, not new makey at all of course, but bright with citrus and vitality.
This is the kind of younger drammer I always like at the bar - the well-chosen refill bourbon casks – waxy and confident spirit, with a little bit of fruit.
