SMWS 39.93 - Pork Chops in Red Wine Sauce Review

. The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyFrom March's The Scotch Malt Whisky Society outturn this is 39.93 - Pork Chops in Red Wine Sauce

I've tried a few from this distillery in the last few months but this one really just did not agree with me, although it was very drinkable, and very minty, it just didn't have that hook that brought me in and for the age it was more prickly than i would have expected. Still perfectly drinkable but not one i'd go personally out my way to have although there were a few others who loved it..

If you're a whisky fan then the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society really is for you.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

wow i was not expecting that, it's minty, and menthol and eucalyptus oil with mint sauce and almost a freshness underneath, really unusual

Palate

mint sauce with hint of fruit hiding in the background, some beef jerky grows in the palate after the mint

Finish

beef jerky with light mint sauce and ground spices
