SMWS 4.185 - Take me up to the ball game Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Part of a short series of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottlings this dram, the 4.185 Take me up to the ball game is from the current December 2013 out-turn.

A lot of interesting character here and a great example of whisky from this island distillery and I could really fall in love with this dram.

It's drams like these that make me glad i'm a member of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society and would like to thank them for this sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


Initially I get some notes of crumbed toasted brown bread with hints of brand new leather shoes mixing in with touches of dried fruit, specifically Some sultanas and apricots, a gentle hint of an open fire burning kindling rounds off a cracker of a nose here.


Oh yummy lots of fresh Open fire smoke with lemongrass & oriental spices wrapped in a leather chamois


tingly & tangy
