Since joining the Scotch Malt Whisky Society I’ve bought a dozen or so bottles but arguably not as many as I should have. I struggle somewhat to keep up with the Cadenhead batch releases that number around 5 or 6 in total for the year. Double that and you have the average monthly outturn for the SMWS.
For this review the SMWS Tasting Panel want us to head back to the 1970’s. My dedication is admirable having wheeled out my chopper bike and flares to get into character after polishing off a chicken Kiev followed by a Black Forest gateau. The whisky itself comes from a rarely seen distillery highly prized by blenders.
