A couple of young-ish SMWS bottles in the hope of finding something we all enjoy... it's been a while!
Peanut butter. Chocolate, nail varnish, a cashmere jersery - high quality comfort. How a Hawaiian shirt would taste, flat Appletizer, toothpaste spat onto nettles and Moroccan alleyways - a wee bit spicy / a wee bit sweaty. A Sugar Daddy's cologne (on a yacht), a new raincoat, smells fluffy (like a cat). Strawberries, a newly plucked (unearthed) carrot, a freshly-mown meadow.
A punnet of strawberries, velvet, on fire, quite harsh but fresh and bright with water. Stripping your tongue of moisture, formic acid. Tangerine peel (with water), floral, an old lady dressed in cashmere. Withered violets, crystalised ginger.
| Probably the prettiest distillery in the world - but how does it taste? (2 photos)
(Atomic) Fireball, way-burnt / flambéed ginger biscuits, egg-white (toasted - baked Alaska?). Giant slide at Waterworld, plastic sole of an old sneaker.
