SMWS 21.28 Relaxing in a Tropical Garden
First up on the #SMWSblind at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society in London organised by Joe McGirr (@smwslondon) and hosted by John McCheyne (@SMWSAmbassador) was this 21.28 Relaxing in a Tropical Garden.
I don't think anyone didn't like this one, and we were all tasting blind, the guesses were all fun but none of us thought it would as old as this dram was, it's a beautiful dram that really comes together nicely and was a fantastic start to a tasting.
Many thanks to Joe McGirr (@smwslondon) and John (@SMWSAmbassador) and to the Scotch Malt Whisky Society for their kind hospitality and for some truely wonderful whiskies.
