SMWS 125.71 - Chocolate Coke Float Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Tasted during a recent trip to the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society venue at Queen Street in Edinburgh this is the SMWS 125.71 Chocolate Coke Float.

We arrived a bit ahead of our booked time so decided to start with a wee dram of something, and as I'd heard this was a cracker I really wanted to try it so this was dram no 1.

The SMWS 125.71 Chocolate Coke Float, which has been matured in a new french oak hogshead, is exactly what it says on the bottle and really was the best possible way to start off tonights dramming. .

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

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

For me the initial note here is 70% and above Dark chocolate, bitter but something sweet underlying, then it hits up with vanilla and american cream soda with cremola foam and hints of cheaper Barrs Cola, it's that little bit sweeter than the american cola versions.

Palate

This is soft and gentle especially for the age with vanilla and cremola foam taking over before a chocolate fondue and sweet foam strawberries finish the palate.

Finish

Very sweet, with a short easy drinking loveliness.
