Hogshead 35956 – 57.7%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright gold
Nose: Pineapple, banana skin, guava, vanilla, polished wood, candied ginger, hints of pepper.
Palate: Grilled pineapple, ripe banana, light honey, Earl Grey tea, vanilla, hints of lime and ginger, a dusting of white pepper.
Finish: Very long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: This is definitely my favourite of the recent SMOS bottlings. The tropical fruit aromas are wonderful, and even though water does make it even better it is perfectly sippable undiluted.
Rating: 88/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
