Scotch Malt Whisky Society “Classy, joyful, timeless drams” – Scotch Whisky News


After last week’s searing heat, it’s time for some well-deserved freshness with two new rare and exquisite casks from our Vaults Collection. Coastal rain clouds roll in from the west with Cask No. 53.389: Goodnight and joy, bringing in waves of briny notes and dreamy flavours evocative of the crisp Hebridean coast. Aged to perfection in a refill sherry butt, you’ll be treated to eucalyptus sweets, tar extracts, salted mead and oysters with lime juice.

After the rain, bask in blissful, cooler, fruitier summer days with 65.7: Timeless and magnificent, which introduces summery treats to the table with poached pears, plum wine, roses and apple-infused tobacco. Hailing from a now-disappeared distillery, it’s a flavourful 30-summers-long story you will not want to miss. Late summer afternoons and evenings could hardly get better than that.

These bottles are online from 9am, grab one before the tide (and lucky members) swipes them away.


Cask No. 53.389

Bottle notes: An ode to sublime distillate and time in refill wood. Purity, power, precision, minerality, fragrant peat and hauntingly evocative complexity.


Cask No. 65.7

Bottle notes: Pears poached in Sauternes, cardamom and ginger followed by oak-aged Japanese Umeshu plum wine. Diluted; rose-scented perfume and apple tobacco.
