SMWS 25.65 - The Whispered Kiss

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyTasted at the February Outurn preview night at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society this is the 25.65 The Whispered Kiss

As with anything whisky related there are rumours, and one of the rumours was that there would be a bottle from this distillery appearing at some point, i initially thought it may have been with the Christmas list but alas it was February who gained.

I'm a big fan of this distillery but do find that the whisky can be either exceptional or quite average and i was a little disappointed by this one, in the blind tasting this was voted into last place by all but one of the 10 people at the tasting. It is very drinkable, but just not as special as a bottle from this distillery can be.


there's a really creamy butteryness to the nose here with some very light werthers originals toffees, underlying that is some violets and floral perfumey notes with black jack sweet liqorice and aniseed

very bready, undercooked doughy bread with something fruitier in the background and a touch of honey

Gentle, doughy and honied
