Wemyss Malts releases largest ever parcel of whiskies

Boutique Scottish spirits producer Wemyss Malts is releasing its largest ever parcel of single cask, single malt whiskies this month.

Twelve casks will be released in time for the festive season, representing five different Scotch whisky regions: Campbeltown, Highlands, Islay, Lowlands and Speyside.

The casks have been selected and named by the Wemyss tasting panel, led by whisky expert Charlie Maclean, and only a few hundred bottles of each will be available.

The 12 releases are: “Toffee Glaze” (1997 single cask from Clynelish, Highlands); “Brandy Casket” (1989 single cask from Glen Garioch, Highlands); “A Peaty Punch!” (1997 single cask from Bunnahabhain, Islay); “Seaweed on the Rocks” (1991 single cask from Bunnahabhain, Islay); “Merchant’s Mahogany Chest” (1991 single cask from Glen Scotia, Campbeltown); “Tarte au Citron” (1998 single cask from Auchentoshan, Lowlands); “Citrus Burst” (1997 single cask from Linkwood, Speyside); “Liquorice Spiral” (1992 single cask from Glentauchers, Speyside); “Coconut and Sandalwood” (1992 single cask from Longmorn, Speyside); “Pastille Bouquet” (1998 single cask from Mortlach, Speyside); “Sweet Mint Infusion” (1991 single cask from Aultmore, Speyside); and “Eastern Promise” (1995 single cask from Glen Elgin, Speyside).

William Wemyss, founder and managing director at Wemyss Malts, said: “This is our largest release of single casks since the company started eight years ago. We continue to work with some more established whisky markets like France, Germany, UK and Taiwan, but are also finding demand from new markets like China and Mexico.”

Suggested rrps for the 12 release range from £60 to £105.
