SMWS 116.20 Fascinating complexity and finesse Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietySome more Japanese drams with this The Scotch Malt Whisky Society 116.20 Fascinating complexity and finesse a fabulous peated Japanese dram.

Peaty and smoky but not the earthiness that you get with a lot of Scotch peated drams, lovely sweetness hiding here too but the real question is how on earth is this 26 years old and still over 61% ABV

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