The Society has released an exclusive bottling in collaboration with German whisky legend and Munich partner bar owner Stefan Gabányi

Reading Time: < 1 minute

For German whisky fans, the name of Stefan Gabányi doesn’t need any introduction – the bartender not only leads the Society partner bar that bears his name in Munich, he’s also a renowned author of several whisky books, including Schumann’s Whisk(e)y Lexicon.

Stefan Gabányi with his exclusive bottling of 66.158: Someone left a cigar in the boudoir.

The Society recently gave Stefan the honour of tasting several different cask samples, before he chose his favourite for bottling and wrote the Tasting Notes.

Stefan’s choice became bottling 66.158: Someone left a cigar in the boudoir, a 20-year-old dram from our Lightly Peated flavour profile, aged in a refill ex-bourbon hogshead and bottled at 51.10% abv.

Cask No. 66.158: Someone left a cigar in the boudoir, served with....what else but a cigar?

Stefan’s Tasting Notes for the bottling read: A very well integrated dram; sweet smoke with marzipan on the nose, alongside the fruitiness of green apple and raspberries. This is closely followed by tree bark and dark chocolate with a touch of ginger.

On the palate now, imagine vanilla cream in a cigar box, Demerara sugar and ripe cherries, before a long and dry finish, full of charcoal and salt.

The Gabányi edition is available exclusively to German members, as well as part of a special introductory offer for new members, who can sign up to the Society for a year and include a bottle of 66.158: Someone left a cigar in the boudoir for only £128.
