SMWS 131.2 Magic Carpet in a Sweetie Shop
When the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society decide to bottle some Japanese distilleries that they hadn't previously they got this SMWS 131.2 Magic Carpet in a Sweetie Shopvery much bang on.
This comes from the first batch of bottle shares from a group of twitter mad whisky bloggers and friends and there will be a whole bundle more this year.
I really enjoyed the palate more than the nose on this one, the sweetness was very much right up my street .
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.
First it's got that foosty dunnage note, almust dusty, then there's dark fruit skins, plum skin, and dark grape skin, then comes the christmas cake with more dark dried fruits of sultanas and raisins with mixed spice and dried citrus fruit peels all drizzled in dark sticky treacle
oh sweet and sultry, there's candied orange and mouthwatering chocolate limes with hints of floral gums creeping in with a touch of juicy pear
sweet and chocolatey with a slight hint of spice
