I recently celebrated the most momentous day in my life so far, the birth of my first child..! Of course as a new father, I had to prioritise and ensure that I had a nice bottle of malt to 'wet the babies head'! After all, I didn't want to let my work slip.
The latest Outturn from Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) had just dropped through the letter box and with their signature quirky cask names and descriptions, I delved in for a read and found 2 perfect drams, aptly named; Baby-faced arsonist, Single Cask 3.191
& Pregnancy Tea Mix, Single Cask, 29.124
After much consideration, I opted for the latter.
Pregnancy Tea Mix, SMWS Single Cask No 29.124
14th October 1991
20 Years Old
Refill ex-sherry butt
549 Bottles Filled
Lovely hints of smoked parma ham, actually reminds me of the cured paprika chorizo that I enjoyed earlier today on a sandwhich! Phenolic peat, slightly salty notes, sea air, smouldering wood, TCP, small hint of liquorice and smoked almonds.
Full and wonderful flavours coat the mouth, soft spice/clove, peat, seaweed, grapefruit, salt, sweet smoke, almond & herbal notes.
A very well balanced dram, slight mineral taste lingers along with the lovely smoke & peaty notes.
The perfect dram choice for my celebration, lovely flavours, perfectly balanced, throughly enjoyed.
