Caledonian (Closed) / Scotch Malt Whisky Society

SMWS G3.7 Sailing Home Under a Smiling Sun Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society This Edinburgh based closed grain distillery was a lucky choice at Queen St as it was the malt of the month on the bar.

This is a cracker of a dram, sweet and floral, with artificial sweetness and floral gums, I could easily drink my way through a bottle or three of this.

I'm planning again to get to over 100 The Scotch Malt Whisky Society reviews again in 2015 and this is no16 of that, I may not make it as i've been running behind this year but I will be trying as hard as i can to get there.

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