SMWS 73.66 Toffee and humbugs in a tea chest

smws This Scotch Malt Whisky Society 73.66 Toffee and humbugs in a tea chest was a bottle a good friend still had and let me try recently.

Interesting nose, almost lactic with milky well stewed tea being a strong flavour note, caramel, raisins and juicy fruits, the palate is strong and powerful, with a huge chewy caramel mouthfeel and then the finish hits you like a steamtrain out of nowhere, its utterly HUGE, and water doesn't do a lot to tame it, a brilliant dram, especially on a cold day, but this is not one for the beginning of a flight of drams.

It's a really different type of dram that usual from this distillery too, which makes this a really interesting dram to try.

Lactic, milky, creamy with blueberry, almost blueberry fruit tea with added milk and sugar, caramel toffee pennies, cold tea and juicy raisins, sweet juicy, tannic.

Chewy, tangy sweet fruits, more of the cold tea, massive hit of blueberry, spices, tangy, huge mouthfeel.

Where the f#$€ did that come from, huge BBQ charred blueberry notes that come back and last and last
