SMWS 26.115 Pilates for the palate Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Tasted as Part of the Big November List preview evening at Queen street this 26.115 Pilates for the palate is from a distillery that i really enjoy the waxy notes from .

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

This is again an ex-bourbon cask and it has given this dram some real afticial sweetener type notes, lots of sweetness here, lots and lots in fact but it's tangy enough still to be wonderfully drinkable.

I'm planning again to get to over 100 The Scotch Malt Whisky Society reviews again in 2015 and this is no22 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.
