SMWS 4.191 - A Romp in the Heather
This 4.191 - A Romp in the Heather was tasted at the beginning of the month when I went along to the Scotch Malt Whisky Society's clans and drams opening feast at the vaults in Edinburgh with my good friend Niall (@niallbenzie).
This is totally my type of dram, and i reckon my clan too, this is from the Lightly Peated clan and works well with seafood as the lightly peated notes come through with lots of sweetness and brininess, .
Remember you can find out your clan and declare your #clansanddrams allegiance by taking the survey on the SMWS Clans and Drams website or if you know you're clan you can get a bottle recommendation by spinning the flavour wheel.
coastal and salty with initially some seaside notes before it goes to underlying heathery sweetness and touches of seafood
theres a sweet vanilla note before a salty seaside and lemony citrus comes through
