SMWS Glorious 12: Rare Whisky & Game Tapas Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Recently I won tickets from the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society for myself and 3 friends to attend the Glorious 12 Rare Whisky and Game Tapas tasting which I went along to on friday of last week..

There were some truly fabulous drams and the food was at the same brilliant standard I have came to expect from the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society with my favourite pairing being the Venison and 27.107 To The Manor Born.

Many thanks again to the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society for the prize win and if you are interested why not book a tasting yourself via their website here (on until the 20th October) and you even get your cover price back against the cost of membership if you join on the night, something that I really can't recommend highly enough.

SMWS 2.88 Cinderella Weeping over Matchmakers Review

View Standard Review Page

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society This was tasted as part of the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Glorious 12 Rare Whisky and Game Tapas tasting which i attended with some friends and this was 2.88 Cinderella Weeping over Matchmakers served with partridge in bacon with cabbage and was particularly yummy.

The food was fantastic and the dram even more so, this is totally unlike anything you would get from the standard own bottlings from this distillery and was a beautiful dram that we polished off the end of the bottle, one i wish i'd got a bottle of.

I really can't recommend enough the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Amazingly creamy on the nose with vanilla pods in cream with fresh fruit salad, tropical and sweet fruits with a really juicy nose that you could just sit and sniff all night long.

Palate

Sweet tropical juices and fruit puree with hints of crushed meringue and lime infused cream

Finish

so so sweet and easy to drink
