SMWS G3.5 - Chocolate Cafe Latte

SMWS G3.5 This single cask Single grain whisky was tasted as part of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society's Grain Week and sent to me by Joe (@SMWSLondon) from the London venue.

The Edinburgh grin distillery that this whisky comes from closed in 1987 (that was the year i went to High School) and although I've tried a whisky from this distillery before i've not tried one as nice as this. The name "Chocolate Cafe Latte" really is very apt and describes it very well.


initially i get something here thats a little bitter, like a freshly crushed coffee bean then there's some sweetness underlying like a touch of Magners pear cider, it asmost smells like it has bubbles like cider (i know that sounds mental), and there's a touch of burnt toast in there too.

theres more fruit here pear and apple juice but still that burnt toast and bitter coffee note also.

lovely sweetness from pear and apple cider
