Laphroaig / Scotch Malt Whisky Society

SMWS 29.150 - Hand Rolled Cuban Cigars Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Last night was the January Out-turn Preview Tasting at the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society on Queen Street and I was lucky enough to head along with my good friends David and Steven to what was a cracker of a night.

The one peat monster of the evening was pretty easy to identify which distillery it was from with lots of the normal distillery character in here, but with lots and lots of cigar smoke and the notes of unlit good quality cigars also.

A great way to round off the evening and available on the SMWS online shop just now.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

There's a very recognisable medicinal smoke element in here with tcp and bandages mixing in well with sniffing good quality unlit cigars and that sweet lovely cigar smoke, underlying that is a fruitiness that reminds me of rowntrees tooty fruities

Palate

the tooty fruities is here but they linger on the palate before a waft of quality sweet cigar smoke comes in also

Finish

very sweet on the finish
