SMWS 117.3 Hubba-bubba, mango and Monstera

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyThis is one of those Scotch Malt Whisky Society drams where the name causes all manner of discussion, it's 117.3 Hubba-bubba, mango and Monstera.

Monstera is a fruit salad plant that i'd never heard of before this dram and have no idea where i'd get it. This is one of those interesting drams that has so much going on in the glass, it's complex and yet simple, fruity, yet spicy but very easy to drink, a real eye opener of the quality of Irish drams though.

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

 

initially quite a sweet nose with really freshly snapped ginger then deep red apple skin, blackcurrants and blueberries and cheap supermarket own brand tinned fruit salad, after a while in the glass theres some sour apples

red apple skins with blackcurrants and fresh malty biscuits with a really creamy buttery note

becomes quite soft and pineappley
