SMWS 53.166 - Kings feast down a mine shaft Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Part of a short series of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottlings this dram, the 53.166 Kings feast down a mine shaft has been available for a while now and is a cracker of a dram.

Seriously smoky and showing some serious Islay character, if you find this one snap it up

It's drams like these that make me glad i'm a member of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society.
