The Scotch Malt Whisky Society – All SMWS Bottle Codes (Info)

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society SMWS Bottle Code Overview

Ever since I joined them in December 2017, I have been an active member and a big fan of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society! Still, I gotta confess that I know less than a dozen if their bottle codes by heart. If you are in a similar situation, this comprehensive SMWS bottle code overview might come in handy. Feel free to bookmark it and return to it whenever you need to look up a Society bottle! (Last update: November 4, 2019)
