SMWS 4.214 After hours Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Tasted as Part of the Big November List preview evening at Queen street this 4.214 After hours isanother ex bourbon cask from this fabulous distillery that usually use ex sherry and i normally love these.

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

Gentle smoke and lots of american cream soda, for me this isn't quite at the levels of 4.182 Slippery Shape Shifter but it's still exactly the type of dram i like to drink.

I'm planning again to get to over 100 The Scotch Malt Whisky Society reviews again in 2015 and this is no24 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.
