Exclusive single cask bottling unveiled by the SMWS

cantina mexicana label fmt

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) celebrated last month’s Feis Isle event with the release of ‘Cantina Mexicana’ (Cask No 127.44). The 12-year-old single cask single malt whisky, which comes with a specially designed label, was matured in an ex-Sherry butt at an Islay distillery. Like all Society bottlings, the distillery name is kept secret and it is a limited edition – with only 588 bottles available.
It is described by the Society’s Tasting Panel, who select all the international whisky club’s bottlings, as having notes of “a dusty Mexican cantina floor” and “toffees, Liquorice Allsorts, balsamic pears and Amontillado sherry”. It can be purchased via the Society’s website, which now sells whisky to non members.
