15 July, 2013

The new whiskies

Wemyss Malts has released another batch of single cask, single malt Scotch whiskies to Europe and Asia.

The six expressions are named by taste and aroma and follow the Edinburgh-based spirits company’s four cask bottlings in February.

Apple Pastry is a 1991 single cask from Linkwood, Speyside; Salted Caramels is a 1991 single cask from Glen Scotia, Campbeltown; The Smokery is a 1980 single cask from Caol Ila, Islay; Maritime Embrace is a 1989 single cask from Bunnahabhain, Islay; Melon Cocktail is a1994 single cask from Aberfeldy, Highlands; and Spiced Chocolate Cup is a 1997 single cask from Clynelish, Highlands.

Each cask has been selected and named by the Wemyss tasting panel in consultation with Scotch authority Charlie Maclean.

Prices range from £67 to £125 and each expression is limited to a few hundred bottles.

William Wemyss, founder and managing director at Wemyss Malts, said: "As always we have selected casks from a range of Scottish distilleries which showcase some of the best single casks the industry has to offer.

“From the delicate smoky subtlety of the 33-year old The Smokery to the pair of 1991 single casks, we are confident that this selection will give Wemyss Malts fans another hard choice of which bottle to buy."
