We’ve always been a curious bunch at The Scotch Malt Whisky Society – after all, we were the first members club to discover and share the delights of single cask, single malt whisky in 1983, and we’ve been seeking out diverse and exciting flavours ever since. It’s not only through whisky that the Society explores new worlds. August sees the return of bottlings from our exceptional Single Cask Spirits collection, with rums of the Caribbean to France’s finest single cask cognacs and armagnacs.

We’re inviting you to join us for new experiences all year round, with membership of the SMWS plus an exclusive armagnac bottling A5.2 Musk-coated candyfloss for only £99. An expedition from sweet to citrus, this complex cask evokes tastes of candyfloss through to citrus zest, before showcasing a smooth caramel finish. Perfect for the adventurous spirits drinker in your life (or a well-deserved treat for yourself).

Available until Tuesday 28 June, the lucky recipient can enjoy the benefits of membership along with this hand-picked single cask.

A pool of burnished teak and maple syrup. The nose starts with a savoury crème brûlée crust, served on a pecan tart and grated grapefruit zest. In the background is a wrapping of musk and dark bottled aftershave. A journey of night into day, in the distance a wisp of smoke lingers and introducing a syrup coated lift. The palate starts with candyfloss dissolving in the mouth, closely followed by a slap of citrus fruit zest dusted with a soft effervescence. It finishes on a burning sweet note with the zest faded away, bringing back the caramel from the beginning. Vintage 2005 59.4% Armagnac barrel ex-Gascon black oak 1 of 606 (300 available)
