SMWS 59.43 - Caramel Swirl Ice Cream
The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is celebrating it's 30th anniversary in 2013 and this SMWS 59.43 is one of the handful of bottles featuring the 30th anniversary label released this year.
Given the name Caramel Swirl Ice Cream this 29 year old highland malt for me was all about fresh fruit salad, a delicious dram and one you should try to track down if you can.
I'll make no bones about it, if you love whisky you really should be a member of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society
fresh fruit salad like you would get in a restaurant and lush heather honey it's quite sweet but has a light smoked oak note and a creamy freshly scraped vanilla pod
more fresh fruit salad with deep vanilla notes and a lot of oak, not wood, then a touch of spice/pepper
fresh fruit salad with ground black pepper
