SMWS 26.93 Cottage Garden Beside a Church Review

. The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyThe third dram from the Livingston Whisky Club tasting at the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society at Queen Streethosted by the wonderful Annabel Meikle (@thewhiskybelle) was 26.93 Cottage Garden Beside a Church.

I'm always so so about this distillery, i know others are huge fans of this distillery but sometimes i find it a bit too waxy and meaty, but this example was beautiful.

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