SMWS 4.185 - Take me up to the ball game
Part of a short series of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottlings this dram, the 4.185 Take me up to the ball game is from the current December 2013 out-turn.
A lot of interesting character here and a great example of whisky from this island distillery and I could really fall in love with this dram.
It's drams like these that make me glad i'm a member of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society and would like to thank them for this sample.
Initially I get some notes of crumbed toasted brown bread with hints of brand new leather shoes mixing in with touches of dried fruit, specifically Some sultanas and apricots, a gentle hint of an open fire burning kindling rounds off a cracker of a nose here.
Oh yummy lots of fresh Open fire smoke with lemongrass & oriental spices wrapped in a leather chamois
tingly & tangy
