SMWS 30.72 Take a Break and Have a... Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyI bought this The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottle when looking for port finished, or matured whiskies and 30.72 Take a Break and Have a... really does hit the spot.

Jammy to taste and thick in texture this relly belies the fact it's only 11 year old, lovely complex flavours and huts spices that warm on the finish make this a perfect dram for me.

If you are a whisky fan you really should consider joining The Scotch Malt Whisky Society.

Tasting Notes & Details


Initially some damson and apricot jams intermix with an underlying spice which is a mix of grated ginger and powdered cinnamon theres a chocolatey note that comes next then ice cream wafers and hints of digestive biscuits


Some fairy liquid soapy bubbles to begin with followed by cinnamon and digestive biscuits... Hints of apricot jam and manuka honey also


Sweet and spicy
