SMWS 10.95 Smoky Porky Perky Poke Review

Glen Moray 2007 Port Finish Cask 20050 Fill Your Own There's an old adage of not reading a book by it's cover and when it comes to Scotch malt Whisky Society bottlings I tend to try not reading the whisky by it's name, but with a name like Smoky Porky Perky Poke it's not as easy as you would think.

There were 198 bottles of this dram from a second fill ex-bourbon barrel and a quick dip of the nose into the glass combined with the name confirms that this is a Moine (Peated) variant from this distillery.

The nose on this dram is utterly delicious, smoky, seafood, creamy, meaty which when the palate introduces a tarte fruitness it initially comes across as odd, but is definitely hugely tasty all the same.

I think this one has gone a fair while back, but such a tasty dram.

Why not Join the Scotch Malt Whisky Society to enjoy drams like this also.

Tasting Notes & Details


Well there is definitely a smoky note here, it's very much like being in the main room of a an old cottage with a roaring peat and wood fire, whilst eating a bowl of Cullen Skink as there is a huge smoky seafood and creamy note, with some burnt ends on the side


The palate on this initially i would describe as quite odd, there's a definite smoky element, again that peat and wood fire, then an odd tarte fruitiness thats like BBQ'd banana with slices of greengages, more of the cullen skink creaminess again.


Soft tarte fruits, with burnt ends and smoked seafood, medium long.
