Nose: Boozy preserved fruit and berries, intensely sweet like cola syrup, blackcurrant juice and Pedro Ximénez sherry. Give this dram a few seconds to open up and deeper spice notes, honey roasted nuts, hints of old books as well as old cracked leather divulge its age.
Palate: Rich, intense and huge like an uplifting elixir of stewed currants and splendid Asiatic spices. Treacle pudding, dark chocolate dipped raspberries and cherries are also in abundance whilst waxy notes only hint at this bold drams true west coast origin.
Finish: Mild peppery finish with elegant sandalwood, cigar boxes and sweet espresso dregs.

The Wemyss Family itself comes from Fife, Scotland, and their home since the turn of the 13th century, is Wemyss Castle which sits on top of an outcrop of rocks and caves three hundred feet above the Firth of Forth looking back towards Edinburgh.
The family have had a longstanding passion for malt whisky and their connections with the industry date back to the turn of the 19th century when John Haig (founder of Haig's) built his first distillery on Wemyss land. Even today barley from the Wemyss Estate is prized by many of the leading distillers, and Cameron Bridge distillery is located just a few miles from the castle.
With this passion came the gradual realisation that, even for the knowledgeable consumer, much of the malt whisky terminology can be confusing. Our range of hand crafted malts was conceived with the aim of making them more accessible and understandable. We use the taste and aromas of the individual whiskies to identify each bottling, rather than the distillery, so the consumer can easily understand the style being purchased.
