Stirs the atavistic soul.
Not so long time ago I had a family visit, as it often happens it that situations there was no opportunity not to go over the sea. I was able to carefully arrange the trip and offered Jastrzebia Gora. And if Jastrzebia Gora Dom Whisky had to be vistited. As planned as done.
On-site I focused my attention on whisky from Scotch Malt Whisky Society 93.38, Stirs the atavistic soul.
I wrote about Scotch Malt Whisky Society in the post about SMWS 73.35 Mounth-watering and scrummy. It is worth to note that this is the independent bottler’s club, presenting whisky in a classic way, always single cask, cask strenght, natural colour and un-chillfiltered. They don’t describe specific distillery on the lable but use two-parts number. First is assigned to a distillery, the second is the number of the cask purchased from this particular distillery.
SMWS 93.38 Stirs the atavistic soul is a single cask – ex Sherry, refill butt, matured 17 years, bottled cask strength 58% ABV, natural colour, un-chillfiltered. There are only 304 bottles.
According to the name this single malt could stir my atavistic soul, I was not sure if I should try it in a public place, smthg bad could happen…
But the temptation is too strong.
C: light amber,
N: fresh, just cutted grass, a bit of leather, coffee, lacquered wood, with the addition of water, lime, ginger, chocolate,
T: lightly sparkling, lemon, ginger, a touch of peat, with the addition of water, slightly fruity like apples, a little sweet, more peat and smoke,
F: long, oak with a hint of sourness.
Very good single malt, that comes from Glen Scotia Distillery. It was not easy but happily I managed to calm down my atavistic soul, everyone is safe, so far…
I have also tasted another single cask, but I will write about it in the next post.
