WHEN FRUIT AND CREAM COLLIDE
Cask No. 88.24
THE FIRST RELEASE FROM THIS DISTILLERY FOR SMWS CANADA
There were lovely aspects of sweetness on the nose neat, with empire biscuits, glaze cherries, golden syrup and beeswax but at the same time there was a fresh caprese salad with balsamic reduction. On the palate we had a refreshing sweet and fruity golden summer peach gazpacho served with well-buttered crusty bread.
After reduction notice the thick oily legs on the inside of the glass as we added a big dollop of crème fraiche to our gazpacho with the mouthfeel now wonderfully oily and an enhanced sweetness that reminded us of floral honey, peanut brittle and chocolate cinnamon tuile.
