Glenfarclas / Scotch Malt Whisky Society

SMWS 1.198 Night nurse in a carpenters overalls Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Tasted as Part of the Big November List preview evening at Queen street this 1.198 Night nurse in a carpenters overalls from the 1st distillery bottled by The Scotch Malt Whisky Society .

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

This is again an ex-bourbon cask from a distillery known for ex sherry but it works and makes me wonder why these distilleries dont do this themselves, but they they wouldn't do it as good as this would they.

I'm planning again to get to over 100 The Scotch Malt Whisky Society reviews again in 2015 and this is no21 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.
