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 9.274 Toffee apple orchard – a full maturation in a 1st-fill ex-bourbon barrel for 19 years and limited to just 192 bottles worldwide.

Perfumed aromas of lavender and roses mixed with sweet apple and gooseberry pie covered with vanilla custard, dried apricots and redcurrant jam. Spicy notes on the palate delivered ginger and apple chutney enriched with nutmeg, cinnamon and orange skin, while crushed almonds were served with chocolate eclairs and panna cotta. Water combined the aromas into Battenberg cake, cheesecake and toffee apples, with orange blossom and fudge joining milk chocolate and almond liqueur. Orange oils now met apricots and pears in a fruity marmalade before wild strawberries were complemented by eucalyptus and menthol in a fresh and oaky finish.
