Wemyss Malts – Smooth Gentleman 5 years old – Tasting Notes

Nose
Citrus, ice tea, sweet vanilla and flower honey notes. Raisin and chocolate sweetness. After a bit it gets candy sweet and pushes the citrus a bit to the back. There are some dried fruits in here combined with black liquerish candy and cinnamon in the back.

Palate
Creamy, lemon, orange marmalade, milk chocolate, and some bitter/dry notes of nuts and green tea. Some herbs like thyme and some light red pepper notes.

Finish
The finish is not so long and has a bit citrus and green tea in the end. The lemon comes back to the front through the sweetness here after have disappeared a bit on the nose earlier.

Score
Scored a 7 out of 10 for me. Fresh and fruity dram…
