SMWS 10.127 Peated Bunnahabhain Sweden Exclusive Release

13th October 2017
SMWS launch peated Bunnahabhain expression and reveal Society tasting events in Sweden.

SMWS 10.127 Peated Bunnahabhain Sweden ExclusiveThe Scotch Malt Whisky Society has just launched SMWS 10.127 ‘Burning scarecrows by the sea’, a 10 year peated Bunnahabhain single cask whisky exclusively in Sweden.

The 10 year old ‘Burning scarecrows by the sea’, from the Society’s Peated flavour profile, went on sale yesterday on the Society’s online shop and will only be available in Sweden.

As with all Society bottlings of single cask whiskies and other spirits, it is a limited edition, with only 234 bottles available. Distilled on 1st December 2006 and matured in a Refill hogshead ex-bourbon before being bottled at 62% ABV, it is describe by the Society’s Tasting Panel as having notes of "pebble beach, seaweed, sun-dried driftwood, bonfire, smoked mackerel and cigar boxes" on the nose, with "blow-torched pineapple and toasted marshmallows" on the palate.

The SMWS 10.127 launch follows the launch in August of the SMWS first official partner bar at The Ardbeg Embassy in Stockholm. This relationship sees the world-renowned bar offering an array of Society whiskies and holding monthly Society tasting events.

The tastings take place on the last Wednesday of each month and are hosted by local SMWS ambassador Patrik Axelsson. The next three events are:
  • Wed 25th October: Preview tasting of November’s SMWS releases
  • Wed 29 November: SMWS Single Cask Spirits tasting featuring rum, bourbon and armagnac.
  • Old & rare whisky tasting – sampling old and hard-to-find SMWS whiskies.

In the coming months, the SMWS will announce plans to stage more tasting events in other locations across Sweden, such as Gothenburg.

SMWS is registered for distance selling in Sweden, so members can order from over 90 bottlings online which are delivered with DHL direct to their door, inclusive of all local taxes – as opposed to ordering and collecting from Systembolaget.

Local SMWS ambassador Patrik Axelsson said: "The release of ‘Burning scarecrows by the sea’ exclusively in Sweden is a great opportunity for our existing members and other like-minded spirits enthusiasts to enjoy a classic example of the single cask whisky that makes the Society unique.

"Through our tasting events at our partner bar the Ardbeg Embassy and the new selection of whiskies and other spirits we release each month, this is a really exciting time to be a member of the Society in Sweden."

You will also find a range of SMWS bottlings available from specialist online whisky shops such as The Whisky Exchange & Master of Malt
