SMWS 63.28 Cherry Blossom Painting
I was lucky to pop into the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society venue on Queen St in Edinburgh last week to meet London Venue manager Joe McGirr (@smwslondon) for a couple of drams and catch up.
We went through a few drams, all of them brilliant, and this Cherry Blossom really lives up to the name on the bottle, and as my first from this particular distillery i really need to hunt out more to try.
I can't say it enough, if you're not a member of the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society then why not? you really should just go join now.
Initially i'm struck by a touch of spiky acetone, which subsides quickly and moves onto floral notes, a lovely fresh bouquet with some tomato plant leaves also before a dusty note comes in near the end.
oh this is very floral, marachino cherry, chrisanthanoms, tomato plant leaves.
lovely and sweet and has a hidden oaky hit
