SMWS R14.1

R14.1 – Papaya The Sailor

58.6% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 29yo ~ Guyana

A voice from high up the mast yelled “fruit ahoy!” as mangos, pineapples and bananas bobbed past the bow and coconuts collided with the hull. Eye patches at the ready we fished out green papayas and stowed them below with casks of rich honey, sticky syrup and angelica root. The air carried an earthy funk with hazelnuts….read more


SMWS R11.11

R11.11 – Pushing The Frontiers Of Funk

66.9% ~ 2nd Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 7yo ~ Jamaica

Our noses confronted a firecracker fusillade of funk – stewed fruits (prunes not plums) and leather (razor strop soaked in Brylcreem); then a floral fracas flared – one panellist got gardenia blossoms and dried palm leaves, another ferreted out C.P. on a gooseberry bush and funeral parlour plastic flowers. The flavours included sugar cane, espresso dregs, resin, badly made roll-ups, salt cod, wellies and hessian doormats…read more



GN3.20 – A Powerhouse Of Petals

48.6% ~ 2nd Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ Hawick

A robust and powerful nose introduced juniper, linseed oil and angelica root before orange and pink grapefruit made way for coriander, fennel and black pepper. The palate was fragrant with an abundance of rose petals and Parma Violet sweets merging with lemon sherbet, fresh orange juice and vanilla ice cream. Diluted with tonic we found honey, jasmine tea and spicy carnation flowers…read more


SMWS 135.30

135.30 – Big Fruit And Short Bread

56.3% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 20yo ~ Highland

A big nose of sweet buttery biscuits and shortbread merged with apples, peaches and pears while delicate floral aromas suggested lilacs and honeysuckle. Syrup textures and melted white chocolate coated the palate as pears poached in rum brought a spicy warmth and hints of molasses on marshmallows, vanilla ice cream and oak. A dash of water released a torrent of intense orange and strawberry essence….read more


113.48 – Ginger Ninja

62.7% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 11yo ~ Speyside

A conventional start of green meadows, lush woodland and gooseberry bushes merged into treacle, toasted oak and tinned fruits in syrup. On the palate however, we found ourselves chasing a deceptive ninja armed with wasabi that danced from dry pear skins and tart crab apples to chocolate chip ice cream, coconut and caramel sauce, before disappearing back into minty bitter chocolate….read more


SMWS 112.84

112.84 – Seductive Shapeshifter

56.1% ~ 2nd Fill Ex-Bourbon Hogshead ~ 13yo ~ Highland

A variety of aromas came to mind when nosing neat; malted milk biscuits, chewy toffee, mint eclairs, salt and sweet popcorn, caramel custard and strawberry laces. Mouth-coating spiced rum punch with a good balance of sweet fruitiness like barley water orange squash. A bit of a shapeshifter as we added water and the scent of strawberry liqueur, with a slight citrussy edge, was poured over vanilla….read more


SMWS 95.48

95.48 – Starless Sky With A Big Full Moon

55.8% ~ 1st Fill Shaved, Toasted and Re-Charred Ex-Oloroso Barrique ~ 15yo ~ Speyside

The nose neat had plenty of goodness with fig rolls, treacle tarts, roasted hazelnuts, candied tarragon, and sweet Medjool dates while on the palate dark chocolate pralines with a cinnamon-cardamom-chilli ganache melted in our mouths as we stared into the dark starless night sky and the big full moon. After reduction, a tarry sweet sherry note appeared before the scent of caramelised bananas….read more


93.164 – All Peaches And Roses

57.8% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 9yo ~ Campbeltown

The nose opened with the delicate sweetness of heather honey, lavender and rose petals alongside apricots, peaches and red apples served with cherry yoghurt. Juicy fruits continued onto the palette as banana and melon joined barbecued pineapple before liquorice and Chinese five spice emerged….read more


SMWS 91.31

91.31 – An Old Soul In New Shoes

55.2% ~ 2nd Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 12yo ~ Speyside

The panel were initially taken somewhat aback by the aroma, which was more reminiscent of a lighter old school highland dram at first. Lots of plasticine, baking soda, bread dough, sunflower oil, minerals, chalk and limestone. Also dried tarragon, menthol and warm, freshly malted barley. Soft but bold in character. Reduction added sweetened porridge….read more


SMWS 66.188

66.188 – The Magic Lamp

61.0% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 7yo ~ Highland

We rubbed a magic lamp and following a sweet, perfumed smoke, the genie appeared in the form of walnut oil, polished oak and smoked bourbon ice cream. On the palate, albeit briefly, we surprisingly found ourselves in Dante’s Inferno where we met a minotaur but were thankfully rescued by a salty sweetness….read more


SMWS 53.382

53.382 – Brawny And Briney

60.0% ~ Re-Fill Ex-Bourbon Hogshead ~ 10yo ~ Islay

Hefty coastal aromas of smoked kippers, fishing nets and seaweed merged with salted chestnuts and cashews as they toasted alongside peppery haggis over hot barbecue embers. Not for the faint-hearted, the palette was thick and burnt as tarry ropes, treacle and liquorice coated burnt sausages, oily chorizo and honey glazed pork dressed with rosemary and tarragon….read more


SMWS 48.133

48.133 – Worm Tub Gunk

60.4% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 17yo ~ Speyside

A superbly rich and juicy aroma greeted us, initially bursting with bubble-gum, juicy fruits, fruit salad juices, lemon meringue pie, citronella was and mineral oils. Heather honey and a big wedge of custard slice. Water brought out a waxier and thicker edge along with ginger syrup, cinnamon powder and coconut oil….read more


SMWS 42.65

42.65 – Grubby Delight

53.9% ~ Re-Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 14yo ~ Highland

Sweet and fragrant smoke engulfed lavender and heather within sight of the sea as oily mackerel, anchovies and shellfish were joined by roasted chestnuts and praline. The palate was a “delightfully grubby” affair that forged a path of soot and tar through fish boxes, haggis and antiseptic lotions. Toasted pine nuts and heather honey….read more


SMWS 41.141

41.141 – Whittling Over A Barbecue

57.5% ~ 1st Fill Spanish Oak Ex-Pedro Ximenes Butt ~ 13yo ~ Speyside

A big and robust nose greeted the panel. Dark chocolate, freshly toasted wood, BBQ embers, marzipan and flowers in a hot greenhouse. Beyond that, we also found crystallised ginger, whittled pencils, hot shoe polish, putty and dried tarragon. Reduction brought sour cherries, old varnished hardwoods, subtle white truffle and boozy Black Forest gateau. The neat palate was spicy and immediately hefty….read more


SMWS 37.134

37.134 – Pheasant Banana

55.7% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Oloroso Hogshead ~ 17yo ~ Speyside

The Panel initially suggested this may as well be cask aged bananas. A big, inviting morass of bananas baked with brown sugar, blood orange cocktails, cranberry jelly and then deeper notes of beery rarebit, game pie and waxy grease. Textural, fat and wonderfully dense! Reduction made everything earthier, broader and more towards black pepper, dry roasted nuts, chopped dates and booze-soaked sultanas….read more


SMWS 36.179

36.179 – Perfectly Plump

57.4% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Oloroso Hogshead ~ 11yo ~ Speyside

We imagined an old fashioned, antique, solid mahogany wood secreter and as we opened a drawer, we discovered an immaculate set of silver cutlery freshly cleaned and polished while in another drawer, we found a vintage Italian leather writing pad. On the palate like a full-bodied Malbec wine known for its plump, dark fruit flavours and a hint of a hickory smoky finish….read more


SMWS 35.288

35.288 – Caribbean Cruise

52.8% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Sauternes Barrique ~ 25yo ~ Speyside

First, we noticed the gorgeous colour which was followed by the slow-moving think oily legs when swirling the glass a little. We baked banana bread muffins, Caribbean coconut tart and sweet potato pudding. On the palate, a fruit trifle made with pineapple, papaya, mango, coconut and plenty of spiced rum. Water added the scent of Curacao bitter orange peel, candied kumquats and quince jelly….read more


SMWS 28.65

28.65 – The Porridge Oats Man

58.7% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 10yo ~ Highland

A rather dry and punchy aroma at first, we noted. Lots of starchy linen cupboards, ironing water, vases full of drying flowers, subtle sooty notes and things like carbon paper, crumbling vanilla biscuits and dried apple rings. Water brought denser notes of old-school shilling ales, waxed canvas, old newspaper and marzipan bars. Neat, the palate was thick with coconut milk, gorse flower, barley extract and lemon peel…read more


26.184 – Lychee Scented Candles

60.4% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 9yo ~ Highland

The waxy fragrance of scented candles formed around cinder toffee and limoncello as oranges, coconut and marzipan settled onto sawdust and polished oak. The palate however greeted us with a burst of mango, melon and peach covered in thick cream while clove and aniseed joined flambeed banana and papaya with a squeeze of lime. Adding water brought us another tropical wave, now combining passionfruit, guava and kiwi….read more


SMWS 24.158

24.158 – Spiked Spanish Coffee

63.6% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Oloroso Spanish Oak Hogshead ~ 12yo ~ Speyside

Oh yes, a great pick me up, as we made a spiked Spanish coffee, dampening the rim of the glass with lemon wedges before dipping into sugar. Then we poured warm Cointreau into the glass and ignited it before we added brandy, coffee and Tia Maria, before topping with a dollop of whipped cream. If this was not enough, with water we had a spiced porter adding ground nutmeg, cloves, coriander seeds and cinnamon sticks….read more


SMWS 16.54

16.54 – Frightfully Good

59.0% ~ Re-Charred Hogshead ~ 10yo ~ Highland

The nose pricked our imaginations – evoking smouldering leaf bonfires, ‘tarpaulin-covered railway sleepers on low-loader and a firewalker’s sneakers’, charcuterie and venison cooked in red wine vinegar. The palate conjured hickory wood smoke, charred bacon and burnt marshmallows; also ‘licking a barber’s razor strop’, tar, aniseed and the scrapings of a burnt curry pot. The reduced nose combined liquorice and magic balloons….read more


SMWS 12.57

12.57 – That Night In Rio

60.0% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 11yo ~ Speyside

A fruity and fragrant carnival invited mango, melon and grapefruit alongside gooseberries and apple pie for a night of dancing on cinnamon, Brazils and vanilla sponge cake. The palate embraced us with chilli heat that said “I yi yi yi yi, I like you very much!” before honey and hard toffee stole a dance to the tune of lemons, tart plums and oaky tannins. With a quick dash of agua we found ourselves in a cascade of stone fruits….read more


SMWS 10.224

10.224 – Sizzling Sausages

61.0% ~ 2nd Fill Ex-Oloroso Hogshead ~ 7yo ~ Islay

Big bonfire smoke surrounded green apples, brambles and limes while savoury aromas developed into salted pretzels and herbs. Sweet notes of marzipan, vanilla ice cream and coconut danced across smoked kippers and barbecued bacon before the palate arrived with applewood smoke and burning raisins. Flavours now embraced smoked venison sausages, haggis and mackerel with Germoline and mace spice….read more


SMWS 9.207

9.207 – A Sweetie Shop In A Garden

56.2% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 17yo ~ Speyside

We were led by the nose into the distillery gardens – spring flowers, jasmine, flowering herbs, grass, beeswax and honey. We also enjoyed marzipan, sherbet lemons, polished shoes and varnished wood. The neat palate suggested custard donuts and plentiful fruit, including trail mix (dried banana, papaya and coconut), stewed apples, raspberries and cherries, cinnamon and coltsfoot….read more


SMWS 5.78

5.78 – Wonder Wheel Ride

54.9% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 18yo ~ Lowland

Deep golden syrup, heady floral scent – gorse in full bloom, a carpenter’s beeswax, apricot jam, camphor, marzipan, ripe red apples, the list could go on and on! Great balance on the palate between the sweetness of blueberry muffins, fizzy sherbet powder candy and caramelised fried apples and lemon zest, lemon zing muffins and a cinnamon spiced Manhattan cocktail. After we added a little water one panellist queued on a seaside promenade….read more


SMWS 4.286

4.286 – Kirkwall Skink

62.9% ~ 1st Fill Ex-Bourbon Barrel ~ 11yo ~ Highland

The Panel found a wonderfully oceanic aroma, full of sea breezes, crushed seashells, chalky medicines, coal scuttles and zingy citrus piths. This gave way over time to petrol puddles in a forecourt, wet bracken and a puff of tarry smoke. Reduction brought dried tarragon, anchovy paste, turmeric and smoked olives in pickling juices. The neat palate was massively assertive and powerful. Lots of natural tar extracts, anthracite, TCP, iodine drops….read more


3.323 – A Flamboyant Extravaganza!

57.3% ~ 2nd Fill Ex-Bourbon Hogshead ~ 17yo ~ Islay

A sublime olfactory experience which took us all to different places. Bramble jam and engine oil, smoked lobster in clarified butter and a pulled chicken burger with barbeque sauce. On the palate an amazing, sweet smoke, blackberry and blackcurrant jam infused with violet liqueur, flaked smoked almonds and peppermint icing. Be careful when adding water, but with a tiny drop, more maritime like a deep pan seafood pizza….read more
