SMWS Institute Wine 107.12 Single Cask - Glenallachie
The full name of SMWS is Scotch Malt Whiskey Society, which is called "Scotch Malt Whiskey Association" in Chinese. It was established by a group of like-minded whiskey lovers. It launches independent bottled whiskey for members every year. The whiskey launched by the association is usually referred to as association wine. Its special feature is that it must be bottled in single cask and original barrel strength (Cask Strength), and Caramel coloring and condensation bottling must not be used to preserve the original taste of each wine.
Another feature of Association Liquor is to use a series of numbers to name different products. The numbers before the decimal point represent the distillery. You can find the relative number of each factory on the Internet, and the numbers after the decimal point represent the SMWS in this distillery. The first bottle (or barrel) of whiskey loaded. Another point is that almost every association wine will have a short sentence in English to introduce the wine, but sometimes that sentence is a bit elusive, so don't pay too much attention to its meaning....
Taking this wine as an example, No. 107 is the Glenallachie distillery, and 12 means that this wine is the 12th whiskey that SMWS puts on Glenallachie.
