SMWS 25.68 Vichy Kisses Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyI've been a huge fan of this distillery for a while now and The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is one of very few places where it is still possible occasionally to get a bottle from this closed lowland distillery that is not at a rediculous price. The 25.68 Vichy Kisses is a cracking dram that likes a spot of water.

I'm planning again to get to over 100 The Scotch Malt Whisky Society reviews again in 2015 and this is no8 of that.

The usual floral chalky notes of floral gums and edinburgh rock from this dram come out really strongly when a touch of water is added, a great dram that i can, and have, sipped for hours.

You can view all of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society drams i've reviewed in 2014 by clicking here and for all the ones in 2015 by clicking here.

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