The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyYes, another The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottling this was tasted after the February 2014 Preview Tasting and was recommended by Angus who always pick me nice drams, this is the 73.55 Apples & Pears

I was looking for an interesting dram for us to have as our final dram of the night when Angus picked this out as it was the current Malt of the Moment which also made it an unbelievable £4 a dram, which is astounding especially as it's a 21 Year Old whisky and one of only 73 bottles in the world.

Yet another dram that completely lives up to the name on the bottle, this is one i wish i had bought a bottle of.


I love the nose on this, the nose comes at you from across the room , it is Very much filled with lovely freshly cut bramley apples, with a touch of demerera covered stewed apples, with lots of rocha pear and sweet tropical pineapple and wood sap
