Mannochmore SMWS Cask No. 64.97: A sunny day in late summer available by the dram in 100 partner bars across 21 countries.The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) is celebrating its partner bar network this October by offering every one of them and their whisky lovers an exclusive Society whisky to be sold by the dram.

The SMWS has 100 partner bars across 21 countries 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 tobacco direction.

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 website for more info on the offer: The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Membership Offer
