SMWS 129.1 A Smoky, Peachy, Yoghurt of Loveliness Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyThe sixth dram of the night on the #SMWSblind at the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society in London organised by Joe McGirr (@smwslondon) and hosted by John McCheyne (@SMWSAmbassador) was this 129.1 A Smoky, Peachy, Yoghurt of Loveliness.

To get to try any of the .1 bottles is always a pleasure and when it's as lovely and surprising as this one it's even better, we all agreed it was of an older age and from other distilleries, a real pleaser this one.

Many thanks to Joe McGirr (@smwslondon) and John (@SMWSAmbassador) and to the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society for their kind hospitality and for some truely wonderful whiskies.
