Scotch Malt Whisky Society “An experimental blended malt” – Scotch Whisky News

Old Fashioned is the Society’s fifth experimental blended , following on from our Exotic Cargo and Faerie bottlings. It’s an 11-year-old , matured in a medley of first-fill IPA beer, bourbon and sherry casks. It’s bottled at 50% abv and there are 2122 bottles available globally. It is neither chill-filtered nor coloured.

The flavours from the blend of whiskies and the different casks they’ve been matured in has given Old Fashioned a balance of sweet, herbal and citric notes, similar in character to the Old Fashioned cocktail that the has been named after.

The Tasting Panel’s bottle :

The possesses a welcoming warmth that combines chocolate, coconut, blood oranges and herbal barley sugar travel sweets. In time, cherry lozenges, candied orange and dusty sweet marshmallows are added to the mix. The palate is outrageously coconutty, with orange Muscat syrup poured on luxurious vanilla ice cream. Beautifully mouth-coating. A touch of water lightens the experience and accentuates a hoppy grapefruit note, which is complemented by fruit salad with cream and over-ripe peaches. The palate is now fruity, thick and syrupy, with chocolate shavings, almonds, marzipan, stem ginger, buttered pancakes and scones.
