SMWS 71.40 - Sticky Apricot tarts at an Indian market

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Tasted during a recent trip to the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society venue at Queen Street in Edinburgh this is the 71.40 Sticky Apricot tarts at an Indian market.

For our next dram we moved to Speyside for something a bit more spicy and sherried, this one coming from a refill ex-sherry butt.

This 71.40 Sticky Apricot tarts at an Indian market was full of spices and as a major player in Ballantines blended whiskies you can really tell why

It's drams like these that make me glad i'm a member of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society.

 

Initially this is really quite spicy and almost nippy on the nose with dulux emulsion paint and ground white pepper but there are hints of tinned fruit salad hiding in the background

Smoother and more nutty than i was expecting from the nose although still a lot of ground white pepper and more of the tinnes fruit salad

long finish, goes on for a while with spices and pepper
