Tasting Notes

In the coastal cave the smugglers hid among a hoard of smoked peanut brittle, brunswick ham and sweet pimento peppers. Carefully opening a packet of bacon crisps to sprinkle over their pea and ham soup, they had to be careful not to make too much noise. They quietly cracked open a few smoked German beers and waited. After a drop of water they could spy the old canvas sails of the smuggling lugger, and smell the barrels of fennel, caraway and coriander seeds that were stashed on board. Reunited with their fellow bootleggers it was time to celebrate with smoked salami, Arbroath smokies and luscious goat's cheese rolled in ash and apricots.

Introducing The Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s Festival Collection

At The Scotch Malt Whisky Society we might be best known for our single cask whiskies. But for our festival collection this year, we wanted to create a range of whiskies that could go a little bit further. We have a global membership, after all, and single casks don’t always stretch that far! So because this time of year is a global celebration of festival season for the Society, we have set out to showcase distinctive flavours from across Scotland’s whisky regions – and we also wanted to make sure there were more bottles to go around.

With that in mind, we’re presenting 12 different bottlings this year, encompassing some very different spirit styles and from lots of different wood types as well. The Whisky Team had a great time creating all these, with everything from Writing Bureau, a 30-year-old Speyside blended malt, to six whiskies with various sherry influences to celebrate the Society’s passion for amazing sherry cask-matured whiskies – and much more in between.

Don’t miss your chance to be part of this extraordinary festival and experience whisky in its most captivating form. Cheers to the Flavour Hunters Festival and the endless possibilities that await within each dram!
