SMWS 10.76 - Duelling Banjos Dram

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyTasted at the February Outurn preview night at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society this is the 10.76 - Duelling Banjos Dram

We all thought this one was tasted the wrong way round with the 29.151 as although slightly peaty the previous dram had taken away any chance of finding it strongly in here. It is lovely though although the bitterness on the finish did come as a bit of a surprise.

This was on my list of possible purchases after this tasting, although i ended up plumping for something much sweeter.


There's a gentle maltyness in here that is maybe a hint smoky, brown bread, hints of smoke and carbolic soap, and gentle hints of oak woodiness

Dry and chocolatey withhints of sweetness and dark dried fruits, lovely gentle maltyness

Really quite sharp with citrus peel bitterness
