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.

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…
