Forty years ago, a whisky lover named Pip Hills was trekking from Edinburgh to Speyside and back in his vintage Lagonda hunting for the best single casks to enjoy with his whisky-loving friends. Pip went on to found The Scotch Malt Whisky Society while laying the groundwork for the future of single cask bottlings. Let’s go Back to the Future with the first three distilleries ever bottled by the Society, a trio that any Society member should have in their collection! Cask No. 1.249 Whisky afternoon delivers the mouth-filling richness Distillery #1 is known to create. Cask No 2.126 Smith's quadrilogy: but which one? is a brilliant example of this ever-popular style from Distillery #2. Chocolate, ripe fruits and herbs combine for a hearty dose of nuanced complexity! Cask No. 3.334 Technicolour panoramic whisks us away to Islay for a peated parade of exquisite aromas and flavours so typical of Distillery #3. Peat smoke, tropical fruit and maritime delights await in this superbly textured malt matured during 17 years! Discover the complexity of these distilleries that paved the way for so many taste adventures over the past four decades!
