SMWS 127.33 Mouth-numbing mountaineering dram Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyThis The Scotch Malt Whisky Society 127.33 Mouth-numbing mountaineering dram was the first The Scotch Malt Whisky Society that i helped my good friend Matt Veira (@mattveira) from the Guildford Whisky Blog buy, he is now a member and gets them all by himself, thanks for the sample Matt.

This fabulously smoky Islay dram really does do everything it says on the bottle, the strength belies what lies beneath though as it is a lot sweeter and much more drinkable than the 63.5% ABV would ever suggest.

Thanks again to Matt (@mattveira) for the kind sample.

If you are a whisky fan you really should consider joining The Scotch Malt Whisky Society for a limited time you can also use the code SMWSfriends to save £22, you can also use this on the gift membership too, so get some money off a friends Christmas present.
