The Scotch Malt Whisky Society proudly announces its first ever Australian whisky!
In a seismic shift for Australian whisky and the appreciation of local spirit, we’d like to proudly welcome Society bottling code 147 to the family.
The Scotch Malt Whisky Society in August will be releasing the very first single cask Australian whisky ever to pass the scrupulous noses of our expert tasting panel.
Bottled exclusively for members of the Society, Cask 147.1 Jacaranda Jam presents a seismic shift in how Australian whisky is presented to the world, and a strong collaboration with the distillery itself in getting here. This milestone represents our dedication to growing the local chapter of the world’s leading whisky club and our commitment to the growing Australian whisky industry. 147.1 Jacaranda Jam is a hand-selected 1st fill Ex-Apera quarter cask yielding only 130 bottles worldwide and is in the Society’s Juicy Oak & Vanilla flavour profile. Bottled as a single cask and at natural cask strength of 63.1% ABV, it will be available to members on Friday 6th August at midday, and only through smws.com.au. Tasting notes of honeyed jam, Coco Pops & milk, waxy flowers and lively earthy notes.
