Hakushu / Scotch Malt Whisky Society

SMWS 120.7 Sweet, fragrant and satisfying Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietySome more Japanese drams with this The Scotch Malt Whisky Society 120.7 Sweet, fragrant and satisfying which was matured in a first fill Bota Corta cask.

Big sherry hits but theres none of that sulphuryness that comes with some of the sherry cask scotch, big discussion on Bota Corta casks and a lot of agreement that they are likely made from American oak rather than european oak. Interesting, unusual and very big.

If you are a whisky fan you really should consider joining The Scotch Malt Whisky Society.
