SMWS 36.70 Rosewater flavoured Turkish Delight

Another Dram picked purely on SMWS tasting notes. I have started to come round to Paula’s love of floral rose flavours. Generally I stay away from too much Lavender due to its close association to soapy flavour/texture, but do quite like Violet (parma violet sweeties!) in my whisky. There have been a few recently that capture this Rose with touches of lemon and also a flowery and barley flour nature that is just so reminiscent of classic Turkish Delight. This dram was backed by plenty of sugary sweetness and touches of woody/herbal spices indicative of its age also. Yum! 86/100
