SMWS 42.16 what it says on the tin Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Tasted as Part of the Big November List preview evening at Queen street this 42.16 what it says on the tin might not taste or smell like ronseal but it's a cracker.

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

lots of cigar smoke and honey roast veg, light vanilla and some lactic notes (the good kind) i liked this a lot.

I'm planning again to get to over 100 The Scotch Malt Whisky Society reviews again in 2015 and this is no27 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.
