SMWS 72.36 Holy Moly

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyAnother from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society whisky for a year selection from this year as July's bottle was this 72.36 Holy Moly, one of only 51 bottles of this dram matured for 31 years.

Sweet, fruity, chocolatey, velvety, deliciousness with hints of baby powder and fresh oak furniture this is a beauty of an old whisky, with that wood influence there but not taking over and filled with such grace and finesse, a real pleasure to have been able to try this one.

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


Melted milk chocolate in a fondue with honeydew melon chunks and sweet strawberries without the tang, a hint of Johnson and Johnson's baby powder and some gentle new oak wood furniture, hints of menthol hiding in the background

Juicy and mouthwatering with light oak spices then fresh honeydew melon and very light fresh vanilla, there's also some darker fruits appearing

Dark skinned fruits and hints of nutmeg
