The nose is a perfectly balanced musical synthesis – peat-smoke bass notes, a sweet (coconut ice-cream) melody on strings, fruity brass section blasts of pineapple and orange and interweaving woodwind strains of herbs and spices (cinnamon, quinine, Barolo Chinato). The palate repeats the structure, but with the volume up high – powerful smoke, maple syrup, honey and custard sweetness, rum-soaked dark fruits and Cranachan, with the herbal note shifting more towards the sea-shore. With a drop of water, the mouth experience is as balanced as a ballet dancer, a rhapsody in booze – all it needs is the right food to turn it into a dance – a table-top tango, a culinary conga – a Chattanooga chew-chew and a cha-cha-cha.

29.214 can be sampled at official SMWS Partner Bars: • JD William’s Whisky Bar, AmsterdamDe Toeter, GroningenPatrick’s Bar, Zwolle  and upcoming tastings with Hans – see

DRINKING TIP: This reaches its best balance and integration with a drop of water; a great dram to pair with food – be bold.
