SMWS 35.100 (Glen Moray) "Rare Release" Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml (Previously $116)
The illustrious Scotch Malt Whisky Society finally comes to a retail store. Do not fret if you're already a member, the amount of whisky being released to the public is a tiny drop in the bucket, just a taste to show the world what the Society has for those who are not aware. We were lucky enough to be selected as one of the four retailers to carry SMWS, along with a few key on-premise accounts, and will be your only source for SMWS bottlings for non-members. This outstanding cask is highly collectable not simply because it's the 100th cask from this little distillery to be bottled by the Society, but also because it's one of the best whiskies I've had all year. Glen Moray is not a well known distillery in the states, but I think the utter freshness of this whisky will shock even those who know it well. Vibrant and brimming with life, it spent 10 years in a fresh bourbon barrel. The Society's stringent cask selection system is on display here, so it will certainly be sought out by SMWS members who pride themselves on procuring special casks like this one. Get yours now or wait and lose out on one of our most interesting casks of the year. SMWS tasting notes, "Fruity and Fresh, the nose has lime pastilles, apple sours and Midori, coriander leaf, flowers and rhubarb tart - refreshing as a waterfall. The palate has lime, orange sherbet, apple turnover and kiwi - wood shavings, pepper and chilli provide a punchy finish."
