Country: Scotland – Speyside
Type: Single Malt
Cask: 1st Fill Sherry Butt
Nose: Tropical fruits, hints of smoke and lots of citrus.
Palate: Earth aromas dance in circles. Chocolate, liqurice and coffee beans become distinctive as it was a Port cask matured whisky.
Finish: Medium long and lingering. Sherry becomes more and more affective as the liquid gets warmer.
SMWS 76.84 is a 1st fill Sherry Butt matured, 21 year old Mortlach single malt!!
Like all other whiskies from Scotch Malt Whisky Society, this particular bottle has an interesting name, Feisty and Zesty, which gives us some hints of citrus already.
A wonderful SMWS whisky, worth every moment of 21 years. Very mature, charismatic and strong. Sherry casks gives dark fruity influence with earthy and spicy character.
This whisky has a vibe and it is revitalizing! I am happy that it was money well spent! SMWS 76.84 made me remember why I am a member of this society.
