Laphroaig / Scotch Malt Whisky Society

SMWS 29.151 Polished Violins and Vintage Cars Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyTasted at the February Outurn preview night at the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society this is the 29.151 Polished Violins and Vintage Cars

This is the only one that everyone guessed right, ok there was only one sherried smoky dram on the outturn but it was unmistakably from this distillery, lovely sweetness underlying a gentle good quality cigar smoke, lovely stuff.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Oh now this is just lovely, there's the smoke, it's heavy peated but not hugely powerful meaty smoke it's more gentle with cigar smoke, lots of gentle sherry sweetness and dose of demerera sugar in here also

Palate

More cigar smoke with chunks of sweet demerera sugar cubes and hints of melon balls in syrup

Finish

Sugary sweet with a dose of good quality cigar smoke.
