Description

Celebrating 40 years as the world’s leading whisky club, we’ve managed to secure a very small parcel of special casks selected by our panel, with matching special labels to celebrate the founding year of the SMWS. Welcome our 1.9.8.3 set, with a cask from each of those coded distilleries on offer. A specially selected cask from distilleries 1, 9, 8, and 3. Taste them in a lineup and experience a flavour journey back in time, or grab a favourite from the series and enjoy on its own.

Cask 3.348 Mellifluous quince – Islay whisky has no right to taste this good. 18 years in a 2nd fill ex-bourbon barrel and full of gentle smoke, quince, old dunnage warehouse, and a real statement.

A gentle smoke poured over a bouquet of flowers, passion fruit and melon. This was immensely tropical on the nose, exhibiting hints of Caribbean rum and a fruity cake mix. Such an elegant palate, with the sophistication of rose water, the freshness of a sea breeze and the charm of an old dunnage warehouse. Mellifluous with water, we tucked into a syrupy fruit salad sprinkled with lemon thyme, eucalyptus and dolly mixture. The texture was now akin to olive oil, quince paste perhaps, revealing notes of lemon and a warm summer afternoon in the garden.
