Glenfarclas / Scotch Malt Whisky Society

SMWS 1.171 - Orchids in an Old Wardrobe Review

SMWS 59.43 Part of a short series of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottlings from the last year or so this is 1.171. .

It's always good to try some of the whisky from the first distillery that the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottled and this SMWS 1.171 Orchids in an Old Wardrobe is no exception, it's a lvoely dram showing exactly why this society was needed in the first place.

I'll make no bones about it, if you love whisky you really should be a member of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society
