SMWS 50.53 - Monster Mango and Melon Review

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Tasted during a recent trip to the The Scotch Malt Whisky Society venue at Queen Street in Edinburgh this is the SMWS 50.53 named Monster Mango and Melon.

This lowland dram was the first from our "A Taste of the Members Room" experience and a really brilliant dram it was, I've been a bit wary of this distillery but i really shouldn't be and should be trying much more from them.

This SMWS 50.53 named Monster Mango and Melon really is fresh and fruity and was the perfect starter dram here.

It's drams like these that make me glad i'm a member of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society.

Tasting Notes & Details


This starts with some lovely fresh citrussy notes, like the outside of a lemon you have been rolling in yoour hand then it becomes more fruity, like walking through the fresh produce section of a quality supermarket, underlying this is a grassyness reminiscent of a dewy spring morning.


Very light, the fruits here are watery fruits like melon and kiwi with light tangyness, touches of grass again, so easy to drink


Super easy and fresh
