Wine Enthusuiast 90
"It has all of the hallmarks of Islay: smoke, char, vegetative elements, and some meatiness, all wrapped up in a mild, non-threatening package."
"An Islay heavy blended malt from the folks at Wemyss, aged for a minimum of 8 years and full of tar and peaty smoke."~distillery notes
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.
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 itself.
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 more easily understand the style being purchased.
