SMWS 4.188 A Ploughmans Picnic

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyThis sample, from my good friend Adrian (@Mynameisgone) from Whisky Chronicle blog, of this The Scotch Malt Whisky Society 4.188 A Ploughman's Picnic i've had for a wee while now and finally getting round to some of these samples, i really wish i'd round to this earlier.

Filled with that really juicy sweetness you get from ex-bourbon expressions from this distillery it's sweet and fruity, with vanilla and malted biscuits, i really have taken to these ex-bourbon variants much more than the typically ex sherried own bottlings from the distillery.

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


Seriously sweet and fruity with pear drops and fresh royal gala slices touches of fresh Madagascan vanilla and freshly made red onion chutney with a hint of something heathery/mossy and malty in the background

Dry heather and moss with malty smoke and more of the old fashioned sweet shop pear drops and fresh apple slices and hints of some sweet chilli and nutmeg

Fresh fruity and malty smoke
