Old Pulteney / Scotch Malt Whisky Society

SMWS 52.20 All Day American Breakfast in the Garden Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyBack in the early part of 2014 I stated that i wanted to review 100 The Scotch Malt Whisky Society expressions in 2014, and I thought recently that I wouldn't make it but this 95th post (thanks to Barry (@thewhiskyphiles) from The Whisky Philes blog) and others he has passed me samples of means it will happen before Wednesday evening.

This 52.20 All Day American Breakfast in the Garden has masses of lovely fruity orchard notes, with big undercooked pastry notes, cinamon notes and hints of tangtastics. A really interesting one as not bottled regularly at all for The Scotch Malt Whisky Society in fact difficult to get many independent bottlings from this distillery.

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