SMWS 39.92 – Dessert Wine and a Smoking Jacket

The SMWS bottling marked with 39.92 Dessert Wine and a Smoking Jacket comes from the Linkwood distillery where is was distilled on the 29th of October 1990, matured in a refill hogshead for 23 years and finally 226 bottles bottled at 49,5%

Honey filled nose with notes of burned toast with orange marmalade. Soft ginger and coffee coming forward after that. Getting some fresh almost tropical fruit notes. Vanilla pods, cream and strawberries. Lovely soft, fruity and creamy nose.

On the palate there is a lot of the nose combined with sweet soft liquerish and coconut notes. Dried figs, raisins and apricots covered in honey and little bits of milk chocolate. Good length of a finish and delivering more and more lush fruit notes the longer it is sitting in the glass. Scoring it an 8 out of 10. Lovely rich and balanced.
