SMWS 85.27 Refreshing Elderflower Fizz

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Another from last week when I poppedinto 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.

Oh now this is a cracker of a dram, sweet and floral, very much like the Elderflower cider i was having also, really really enjoyed this.

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.


This is sweet, very sweet and yes there's elderflower in there, and ok i had just had some elderflower cider also but it's definitely there, with some gentle fruity notes with freshly cut watermelon being one of the stronger ones i get.

very sweet again more of the elderflower mixed with watermelon juice and a hint of fresh lemonade

touches of oak coming through on the finish along with melon
