SMWS Tasting Panel's tasting note: "A robust and unctuous aroma greeted us. Sweet raisins, figs, sultanas and a myriad display of sticky dark fruits. Malt loaf, booze-soaked Dundee cake, prunes simmered in Armagnac, black truffle and balsamic reduction. With water we got sweeter and lighter fruit tones like guava, mango jam, red fruit cordials and then pipe tobacco, damp and musty wine cellars, aged Tokaji and plum wines.
The neat palate was big, punchy and assertively spicy. Lots of dried pink peppercorns, tabasco sauce, wild strawberries, paprika, chili chutney and juniper gravy. Water brought out cinnamon swirl pastries, black miso, dried mint, old orange wines, cardamom and strong Irish coffee. Previously in an American oak butt for seven years before being transferred to a 1st fill Spanish oak oloroso butt."

A Club With Personality - Who Are We?
The Scotch Malt Whisky Society is a club unlike any other. Since we were formed in 1983, we've believed in doing things differently. We seek out whisky in its purest form, we prize flavour above everything else, and we're united and constant in our passion - to share the world's best whiskies, to bring them to life, and to make you proud to belong to the world's most colourful whisky club.
"The people who said it couldn't be done were so dull" - Pip Hills, Society Founder
Our Society grew out of a few individuals' irrepressible spirit of discovery and adventure, which still drives us today. Inspired by the unique character of a cask of single malt whisky, purchased over 30 years ago from a Speyside distillery, this pioneering group of friends founded the Society in 1983 to buy more casks and share their discovery with like-minded adventurers.
What We Do
Each of our whiskies must pass the uncompromising noses of our expert Tasting Panel – a secretive group of independent whisky connoisseurs from all walks of life – before being deemed worthy of an iconic Society green bottle. The exploration of flavour and sharing our discoveries is what we're all about. Our members enjoy exclusive access to our hand-picked whiskies from over 140 distilleries in Scotland and beyond. We bottle them at cask strength and offer a constant variety. How you drink them is entirely up to you.
