SMWS 13.47 (Dalmore) It’s A Knockout

IMG_20151111_204019During my membership with SMWS I haven’t seen a Dalmore bottling so I was eager to try this one. It’s also matured in a bourbon cask so it’ nice to see what Dalmore is like without all that sherry influence.

SMWS 100.12 (Strathmill) Trip to a Shopping Mall

SMWS_100.12I don’t remember seeing a Strathmill from SMWS for quite a while and with this being the 12th SMWS cask from the distillery it seems they don’t bottle it much. Similarly there aren’t many official bottlings from Strathmill since it’s used mostly for blends. So naturally the rarity of it all caught my attention and I just had to try this one out.
