BEESWAX ON A CELLO

$140.99

FIRST RELEASE FROM DISTILLERY 68 FOR SMWS CANADA

A complex, layered nose of marzipan and plum jam, apple, cinnamon, apricot and lime – followed by a definite floral aspect of roses, violets and elderflower, finishing up with oak, beeswax on a cello and tobacco strands. The palate was both sweet and tart with damson jam and cherries in dark chocolate, then a curlicue flourish of Fisherman’s Friends sweet teasing spice.

The reduced nose found figs, dates, maple syrup, dark toffee and polished red apples in a basket. The palate still displayed that sweet heat – nut brittle, Bakewell tart, sweet cinnamon and liquorice root – interesting, unusual and enjoyable.
