SMWS G10.2 - Sweet and substantial

SMWS G10.2 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.

I sampled some of G10.1 when at SMWS London before Whisky Live and still have my notes to post on that particular dram (i think i might actually just post them below this one), this second bottling from the distillery that took over most of the work when Dumbarton closed is a cracker. Almost as old as me and with the name "Sweet and substantial" it really is a brilliant dram.


sweet and sugary to begin with, demerera sugar though, not granulated white sugar, with a toffee and brown bread note. theres a heather floral note and some vanilla too, quite yummy

quality street toffee pennies on brown bread with demerera sugar and chinese all spice

Chinese allspice and demerera sugary.
