SMWS 93.38 - Stirs the Atavistic Soul Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society This The Scotch Malt Whisky Society 93.38 - Stirs the Atavistic Soul was one that Yoav (@yoavgel), Chris (@chrismiles303), Erik (@thewhiskykiwi) and I selected as part of the #SocietyShare (groups of 4 or more pay £35 each for a bar meal plus a total of 3x200ml bottles to be split between the group with a dram from each and the rest of the 200ml - usually 100ml if you're a group of 4 - going home with you)

A distillery that I consistently get lots of engine oil and meatiness from this was a really nice choice as our starter dram, and one that if you see around anywhere i would happily recommend you pick up.

Another reason to join the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Tasting Notes & Details


The nose on this starts off for me with gentle engine oil warm and used with metallic chunks, the sherry influence is almost coca cola like with hints of artificial vanilla extract and then lots of meatiness joined by a hint of fresh fruit salad.


Meaty and engine oil with gentle fresh fruits and vanilla essence with hints of butter scotch angel delight


Sweet but drying with smacks of potato salad and meat sauce
