Teaninich / Scotch Malt Whisky Society

SMWS 59.50 Comfortable in the Chesterfield Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyAnother from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society whisky for a year selection from this year as October's bottle was this 59.50 Comfortable in the Chesterfield from the distillery which had a few bottlings to celebrate The Scotch Malt Whisky Society's 30th birthday in 2013.

This is really light on the nose initially and you really need to work hard with it, but it's very much worth working hard for, that dusty leathery, oakyness and lemons work really well together.

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

Tasting Notes & Details


Very light takes a bit of sticking your nose in the glass to get anything out of it, dusty rooms and old used leather chamois cloths, oak woodiness and then light lemony waxy notes with hints of sweet tree sap


Sweet and malty with a real biscuity taste, it almost tastes Peated it's so malty and meaty with waxy lemons dust and leather all combining to excite your taste buds


Sweet, drying and long lasting spice
