A Very British New Year!The Scotch Malt Whisky Society
Break out the party favours, roast beast and every pudding you can think of…. it’s going to be A Very British New Year! We are in the holiday spirit and delighted to share two beautiful single cask whiskies from Wales and England! Cask No. 128.13 Welsh delight marries this unique spirit character with bold Oloroso sherry influence, resulting in a Jerez-inspired taste adventure packed with boozy desserts and exotic cocktails! Cask No. 137.12 Phenolic anticipation is a sensationally smoky dram, garnering vanilla-fueled richness from an active first-fill ex-bourbon cask to frame a palate our Tasting Panel refers to as “absolutely massive”! Intense smoke and tropical fruits on the neat palate give way to maritime delicacies when water is added. The expressions from this distillery tend to offer peated elements of the islands and mainland Scotland in the glass, a fascinating duality that will entice all peat lovers! Both whiskies will surely make an exuberant taste adventure for curious connoisseurs and newcomers alike, keeping the holiday spirit flowing through the New Year!
