Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) is
celebrating its partner bar network this
October by offering every one of them

Society whisky to be sold by the dram.
The SMWS has
and every one will have a measure of
Cask No. 64.97: A sunny day in late
summer available to all customers from
11th October 2018. Those of you familiar
with the SMWS coding system will know
that this originates from the rarely
seen Mannochmore Distillery.
SMWS partner bars provide a
home-from-home for Society members and
whisky lovers alike, and have been
exclusively selected for their whisky
selection, bar staff expertise as well
as the warmth of their welcome.
This exclusive hand-picked Mannochmore
whisky has been chosen to support and
promote the SMWS partner bar network. It
cannot be found anywhere else and will
not be sold by the bottle. There are
only 222 bottles in total.
SMWS members will be invited to a
members-only preview at partner bars
before it is available to the public by
the dram today 11th October 2018.
Mannochmore SMWS Cask No. 64.97: A sunny
day in late summer was distilled on 5th
March 2008, matured in a refill
ex-bourbon barrel and was bottled at 9
years old at 60.7% ABV.
The Society’s expert Tasting Panel found
the nose immediately attractive – dark
polished wood, dried flowers and a late
summer impression of meadows and orchard
fruits (pear, peach, russet apple).
The palate had juicy fruits (pear-drops,
strawberry, stewed rhubarb), chocolate
and marzipan confectionery, with the
finish nodding in a pink peppercorn and
Kai Ivalo, Spirits Director at the SMWS,
commented on this celebration of partner
bars, saying: "Our partner bars provide
a place of interaction for like-minded
whisky enthusiasts, a sense of
community, as well as making whisky fun
and approachable. This year is the
perfect time to release this bottling as
we celebrate the 35th anniversary of The
Scotch Malt Whisky Society."
The SMWS are also offering these special
five dram Discovery Packs as part of an
exclusive membership offer, which
includes a five-dram 35th Anniversary
pack, which would cost £40 alone, and
Society membership, for £89 see the SMWS
