SMWS G9.1 - Sweet and Sour Melange Review

SMWS G9.1 This single cask Single grain whisky was tasted as part of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society's Grain Week and sent to me by Joe (@SMWSLondon) from the London venue.

This distillery, by the bonnie bonnie banks, is completely new to me i've not had any grain or malt from here before so it was really interesting for me, Being the first bottling from this distillery by the society it's also quite a pleasure and very exciting to try it, the name "Sweet and Sour Melange" really does give you an idea of what to expect.

Tasting Notes & Details


the initial note for me is fresh brown bread, with a touch of sweet and sour sauce, a little spicy and a touch of fresh pineapple nip on the nose, underlying that thers's some gentle oaky wood notes that are almost sawdust or wood shavings with some demerera sugar.


tinned peaches in syrup with a quality street toffee penny and a gentle kick of spice too


toffee and spices lovely
