SMWS 76.113 - John Barleycorn was a hero bold

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Last night was the January Out-turn Preview Tasting at the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society on Queen Street and I was lucky enough to head along with my good friends David and Steven to what was a cracker of a night.

What a great way to start the tasting, this dram was full of butterscotch and caramel and really did work well for me, it was my instant favourite and stayed there until the 4th dram, i really enjoyed this one and there's still plenty of stock at the SMWS online shop if you fancy trying it too.


The nose for me starts off quite malty with caramel toffess, werthers originals without the creaminess, lightly toasted white bread here too, the longer this dram is left in the glass the more caramel comes out here

More of the caramel and toffees again although this time theres also a doughy note in here too with a kick of pepper and some tinned fruit salad creeping in.

Peppery and sweet and mouth watering
