SMWS 5.41 Vibrant Lively and zingy

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyA wee trip to the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society always means the chance to try something new and exciting, this time it was 5.41 Vibrant Lively and zingy a 13 year old lowlander, and one worth looking out for.

This was so nice that Mrs T has picked me up a bottle and hidden it for Xmas, which i'm really excited about, i've had a number of really good The Scotch Malt Whisky Society expressions from distillery number 5 and this is yet another.

If you are a whisky fan you really should consider joining The Scotch Malt Whisky Society.


Sweet vanilla essence with crunchy caramelised demerara sugar and some crunchy red brae burn apples with hints of butterscotch coming though as it sits in the glass, some polished tables notes of oak and polish come through hiding in the background

A touch of caribean spice at first when mellows quickly into vanilla with digestive biscuits and bread notes cover in lemon butter with cloudy apple juice

waxy oily lemons and squeezed apple juice
