Nose: Sugary-sweet smell of foam shrimps or banana ‘pic ’n’ mix’ accompanies more tropical and sophisticated aromas of grilled mango slices, freshly squeezed pineapple juice and orange oil. Rich notes of Manuka honey and demerara caramel hint a hefty oak influence.
Palate: Over 27 years of maturation has imbued this unpeated whisky with a smooth and gentle body. Complex exotic fruit such as dried mango, juicy fruits and coconut mix with richer caramel that builds to the flavours of a tropical island dessert.
Finish: Suggestions of dried Lavender and perfume are the only hints of this drams Islay origin.

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.
