SMWS 26.105 Bumblebees by the Sea Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky SocietyThis outstanding The Scotch Malt Whisky Society 26.105 Bumblebees by the Sea I tasted as part of the Ultimate 2014 highlights tasting at Queen Street.

I'm planning again to get to over 100 The Scotch Malt Whisky Society reviews again in 2015 and this is no4 of that.

There's just something completely more-ish about this dram, the beeswax and honey, the fudge and salted caramels are totally up my street, this is one of the best drams i've had from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society and for me stole the show at this tasting.

You can view all of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society drams i've reviewed in 2014 by clicking here and for all the ones in 2015 by clicking here.

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