SMWS 25.61 Lemon and Vanilla Delicacy

When I was down in Edinburgh I finally had the opportunity to meet someone I have tweeted with for probably 5/6 years. This would be Tom Thomson, and as I left to race off to The Whisky Lounge he kindly gave me a sample to try, SMWS 25.61 Lemon and Vanilla Delicacy a 20 year old Rosebank at 51.3% abv.

Bright golden colour

Lovely fresh nose lovely sweet lemon. Enticing sugar and fresh cut grass. Slight sherbet hit too and of course there’s the gorgeous vanilla.

Hmm vanilla on the palate and the lemon mingles delightfully. There’s a bitterness too that just adds some heat. Slightly oily (waxy) mouthfeel, yet full.

Lovely finish.

Later that evening I tried another whisky from the SMWS… watch this space 🙂
