SMWS 5.46 Peachy and Perky Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Tasted as Part of the Big November List preview evening at Queen street this 5.46 Peachy and Perky was one i jumped at from the list.

This dram will be officially launched on Friday 13th November.

I'm a big fan of distillery 5 with 5.36 Rubbing white tiger balm on your forehead being one of my altime favourite drams.

The nose here was fabulous but the palate i felt was a little too light and the finish short, it's very drinkable and a great nosing whisky, I would just have liked more on the palate.

I'm planning again to get to over 100 The Scotch Malt Whisky Society reviews again in 2015 and this is no18 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.

Tasting Notes & Details


huge prickly sweet citrus fruits come first, the prickle is almost enough to make you sneeze, lemongrass, citrus fruits, tangy haribo sweets and hints of sherbert fizz


soft light fudge and sweet candy floss, light and delicate, citrus notes with hints of floral arrangements


a hint of spice comes through but it's very short and easily forgotten
