Nectar Grove is a combination of light and nutty Highland Scotch whiskies that have been carefully and considerately combined together before finishing for a further period in casks which had previously held Madeira fortified wine.
Family run whisky makers Wemyss Malts have released two additional bottlings into its Family Collection range of blended Scotch malt whiskies and have named them ‘Blooming Gorse’ and ‘Flaming Feast’ after the flavours found in each whisky.
Both malt whiskies have been crafted from the family’s private collection of maturing whisky casks which were sourced by Isabella Wemyss and filled under her supervision. Years later, the mature whisky casks were selected by famed whisky writer Charlie Maclean and the Wemyss Malts team only when the spirit and casks had reached absolute balance and harmony, ready for crafting into exceptional blended malt whiskies.
Weymess Malts selected Highland Scotch whiskies and finished them for a further period in casks which had previously held Madeira wine. Nectar Grove was named by the Wemyss tasting panel which reflects its succulent and luscious fruit character.
But let’s not forget the amazing label. The eye-catching label was inspired by Ceramics and Fretworks from Portugal, reflecting the vibrancy and variation within the whisky.
The Vanilla Burst is a lovely blend of two speyside single malts, that were chosen to mature in 15 1st fill bourbon barrels. 4800 bottels are released with the influence of sweet and light single malt.
Treacle Chest, is a blend of two highland single malts, and were chosen to be matured in only 14 1st fill ex-sherry hogsheads. And 6300 bottles are released with this lovely whisky.
Family run, independent bottler Wemyss Malts is releasing a new range of blended Scotch malt whiskies that have been produced from the family’s private collection of maturing whisky casks. Rather than use whisky that has been purchased mature and ready to blend, Wemyss Malts has over the past decade sourced oak cask varieties to partner with single malt spirit selected from some of Scotland’s foremost distilleries.
When you go to the website of Wemyss (pronounced as Weems) malts, you read the following:
The Wemyss 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.
And the passion they write about, you will find this in every whisky they release. And their range of hand crafted malts was conceived with the aim of making them more accessible and understandable.
An exciting online whisky tasting with the Hive Batch Strength, Spice King Batch Strength and Peat Chimney Batch Strength bottlings, along with a special smoky old fashioned cocktail, Rob Roy.
We received the order to leave Rob Roy in the chill zone. I kept him next to the cheese and the salad. Rob Roy needed to wait until the sign and when that time came, Rob Roy also was free to pour himself into a glass.
Kingsbarns Distillery is delighted to announce that its Founders’ Club membership is now available to buy through an instalment plan.
The Visitor Centre was opened on St Andrews Day 2014 by the Wemyss family owners and the founder, local man Douglas Clement. Distilling started in January 2015, with the first cask filled in March that year.
As we gather to celebrate the longest day – midsummer, Independent bottler Wemyss Malts releases a gathering of nine new single cask whiskies ranging from 18 to 27 years old. As always the descriptive names of these whiskies are based on the flavours and aromas discovered by the Wemyss tasting panel.
On the night of September the 23rd, there was a real whisky happening on Twitter. From around the world people were ready to do some serious nosing and tasting, including me.
This time it was Wemyss’s turn.The range of whisky that came with the package was stunning. Just for this evening I used the NEAT glass for an optimal experience.
I have to admit, it has been a while since I last used the NEAT glass.
