  • Intro:

    SMWS 77.59 comes as an independent bottling of spirit distilled by Glen Ord and bottled by the SMWS. Matured in a refill PX hogshead, this is bottled after 11 years of aging at cask strength, with no coloring or filtering. Let's get to it.

  • Nose:

    Sweet and musty. Lots of almond, honey, fresh baked bread, pepper and some parchment. Not super sweet, almost no fruits. Very bready.

  • Taste:

    Sweet and rich on the palate, no heat whatsoever. Pepper is immediately there, along with fresh baked bread, almond and more honey. Heat grows over time, sneaking from the shadows.

  • Finish:

    Finishes a bit hot, with lots of pepper and honey.

  • Overall:

    Not the most complex dram. It is a stretch to say it is one noted, but it would also be a stretch to call it more than three noted. Nothing wrong, but it is not winning any awards for interest or complexity, either. Its good.
