SMWS 85.27 Refreshing Elderflower Fizz

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