SMWS 50.71 Alfresco Brunch Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Tasted as Part of the Big November List preview evening at Queen street this 50.71 Alfresco Brunch was one another from a Lowland distillery i've not had enough from.

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

The usual grassy riverbank notes from this distillery are there and hopefully the future of this place has been secured and we will continue to get distillery 50 bottlings for years to come.

I'm planning again to get to over 100 The Scotch Malt Whisky Society reviews again in 2015 and this is no20 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.

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.
