A Society Share With The #WhiskyFabric

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society A night out at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society with the awesome #Whiskyfabric guys Yoav (@yoavgel), Chris (@chrismiles303), Erik (@thewhiskykiwi) and I where we took part in the #SocietyShare (groups of 4 or more pay £35 each for a bar meal plus a total of 3x200ml bottles to be split between the group with a dram from each and the rest of the 200ml - usually 100ml if you're a group of 4 - going home with you)

3 cracking drams, from a selection of literaly hundreds took us the longest part of the evening but we were definitely happy with the choices we made.

A very interesting one this one, it looks like cola it's so dark, the sherry influence is soo strong in this, and it is a seriously glorious dram

The nose on this makes your mouth water its flat sugary cola (also in colour) with sherry soaked raisins with dark prunes and hints of dried fig then theres gentle vanilla and cremola foam in here also

Dark prunes begin here then it moves to more of a ginger and lots of vanilla here

Cremola foam and prunes

Very unlike the normal ashiness of this distillery it is lemony and almost lemon juice coated seafood with an earthiness, lovely stuff

Soapy bubbles with citrus notes of lemon and pink grapefruit before fresh vanilla pod and gentle notes of sweet bananas before the earthy sweet smoke kicks in and takes over

Lots of chalky parma violets with lemongrass and fresh lemon juice mixing with earthy smoke

A distillery that I consistently get lots of engine oil and meatiness from this was a really nice choice as our starter dram, and one that if you see around anywhere i would happily recommend you pick up.

The nose on this starts off for me with gentle engine oil warm and used with metallic chunks, the sherry influence is almost coca cola like with hints of artificial vanilla extract and then lots of meatiness joined by a hint of fresh fruit salad.

Meaty and engine oil with gentle fresh fruits and vanilla essence with hints of butter scotch angel delight

Sweet but drying with smacks of potato salad and meat sauce
