Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Single Cask

Scotch Whiskies

In August 2016 Boyd’s Jig and Reel became a Scotch Malt Whisky Society Bar. This exceptional privilege is only offered to a handful of bars across the country that has an outstanding commitment to Scotch whisky. We are honored that we can now bring you some of the most exclusive single cask malt whiskies available from Scotland.

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) is an independent bottling company who purchases full casks of whisky directly from the distilleries. Each cask is individually selected by the society and is bottled when they feel the whisky has reached its prime. The whiskies are never chill filtered, diluted or have colorings added to them, so you can be sure that the SMWS bottles are a true representation of authentic single malt scotch. The SMWS list is constantly updating and every bottle is a limited edition.

Deep, rich & dried fruits

5.48The wood hit our noses as oak shavings, fresh-cut pine and furniture stores; then we detected eucalyptus, ginger and new leather shoes; but it was also sweet (Oreos, syrup, plum sauce on sponge) and floral. The palate’s deeper regions gave us liquorice root, black tea, cinnamon and dry oak, while its lighter face had figs, guava, raspberry jam and fruit cake. Water brought sauna wood and clove-studded ham to the nose; cough syrup, rich toffee and Chupa Chups to the palate. After 13 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead, we transferred this into a sherry butt for the remainder of its maturation. 14 yrs 59.60% “Stave New World” $28.00
30.89The nose was deep and dark, but pleasantly attractive – we found dates, Demerara, mocha, rum truffles and candy floss; a lady’s wooden dressing table and a French polisher’s tool-bag. The neat palate was very sweet – treacle toffee, rum cake, Dr Peppers, and Calypso coffee, but with hints of perfume and Benylin linctus offering intrigue and interest. The reduced nose suggested cinder toffee, fly cemeteries (fruit slice) and sherry trifle with lady finger biscuits in the bottom. The palate had moist ginger cake and sugary espresso dregs, with black tea, dry wood and gentle spices giving a satisfying shimmer to the finish. 24 yrs 58.30% “Deep Dark & Pleasantly Attractive” $38.00
71.41A curious and intriguing nose – we found spiced toffee apples, roasted chestnuts, figs, fudge and old wood (cigarette boxes?); a mixture of treacle and Olbas Oil, some rich sherry and a matchbox. The neat taste had tongue-numbing menthol and eucalyptus and made us think of figs, sherry, burnt toffee, honey-roast parsnips and beetroot crisps; old tea chests and erasers. The reduced nose got dried flowers on a lavender polished table, old leather chests, hazelnuts and menthol cigarettes. The reduced palate had pleasant woodiness, some acceptable earthiness (roasted sweet potato, walnuts, hay) and candy floss sweetness (including chewing the stick). 17 yrs 57.20% “Curious & Intriguing” $30.00
72.47Opening the bonnet of an overheated car. When the engine cooled down we had flapjacks, burnt raisins and candied oranges. Water helped, aromas of banoffee pie and prunes developed as the flavor turned into a burnt orange salty caramel sauce. 10 yrs 59.70% “Burnt Spotted Dick” $22.00
73.65Fresh figs and mango to begin then the nose develops with root ginger, coriander and sesame seed oil. There are notes of tweed and leather boots on a walk in the hills. The palate offers more fruit with plums, raisins and a tangerine tart. A salty, savoury element comes from burnt bacon and toast. With water added we enter a tea house; it has old furniture and sweet perfumed ladies sipping on mint tea and well brewed Earl Grey. There is cinnamon spice and red flower oil and a satisfying taste of tarte tatin and caramelised malt loaf. A finish of Lapsang Souchong follows, from the distillery meaning ‘big burn’. 24 yrs 55.90% “Tarts in a Tea House” $40.00
73.69The nose delivered savoury notes, evoking tapas bars (fino, amontillado, tortilla, old polished wood, etc.) but the dessert menu was even stronger (crème caramel, rum and raisin ice-cream, apple granny cake). More complex with water – sugared seaweed, Japanese sweet omelette, earthy hazelnut and plastic toys in the sun. The taste was essentially sweet – vanilla, amaretto, caramel, carrot cake, figs – but with a slight metallic, gamey, bittersweet edge of burnt cake and walnut. With water, its darker side (hoisin duck patrolling the farmyard in wellies) was happily dominated by the joyful sweetness of toffee, toasted marshmallows, Nutella, Dr Pepper syrup and panna cotta. 22 yrs 52.90% “Dark Side Eclipsed by Sweet Joys”
