Glen Moray / Scotch Malt Whisky Society

SMWS 35.60 Dream-catcher dram Review

. The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyThe first dram from the Livingston Whisky Club tasting at the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society at Queen Streethosted by the wonderful Annabel Meikle (@thewhiskybelle) was 35.60 Dream-catcher dram.

When the very first dram of a tasting is a 39 year dram it really does increase your expectations and boy this dram is fantastic, it's got everything you want from a good old aged dram, and hasn't got that woodiness that comes with some. if this is the first dram of the evening, we really are being spoiled.

Many thanks to Annabel Meikle (@thewhiskybelle) for picking some absolutely outstanding whiskies and to the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society for a great tasting.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

This dram initially on the nose is very smooth and mellow, with manuka honey and sweet fresh fruits, then it twists to take on spicy characteristics of cinnamon, nutmeg and christmas cake spices, with a drop of water there's a minty edge coming through also.

Palate

Sweet apple, cinnamon and winter berry pie with slightly undercooked pastry and a dusting of cinnamon,

Finish

A long loving finish that coats every part of you but is a little drying
