Meet Deets
Meet #100   |   17/11/18   |   Hosted by Phil
Our 100th Meet! We decamped to Falkland Palace for a weekend in a cottage and a crazy lineup of drams - but all for charity. A good way for SSWC to sign out :)

Marzipan, smell would confirm the sherry cask, Olbas Oil, Bovril, raisins that have been steeping wine for too long, figs, Black tea, bananas, a pleasantly sweaty chest, Brandy in an old woodden drinks cabinets (tool(s?) pale(te)?), pepper dulse. Smarties make me naughty" Candy floss, vanilla, blackcurrants. The smell would confirm the sherry cask.
Hot & sour, stewed tea, dry red wine. Nose better than taste, just like a man in a tuxedo. A man in a Tuxedo, Cola, stewed prunes, mouldy fruit, like a rolling stone, a lot less intense than the nose, like the Ben Nevis 49yo (30% 'whisky').

Dry & long.
Fresh but woody. Fresh butt woody. Not as tasty as it smelled, Staind, maybe nicer if it weren't in a sherry cask, I like it more than the first one
