Wemyss Malts refreshes Single Cask line up

(Keep an eye on the blog for reviews of two of these releases coming very soon!)

Edinburgh based boutique Spirits Company Wemyss Malts is delighted to announce the release of a new parcel of single cask single malt Scotch whiskies.

Each cask is a celebration of the unique and contrasting appeals of the different Scotch whisky regions and the latest release covers three of the regions: from Islay, Highlands, and Lowlands.

Wemyss whiskies are each named after their natural taste and aroma and the full cask list of this release comprises:

“Apple Basket” – 1997 single cask from Clynelish, Highlands
“Lead on Macduff!” – 2002 single cask from Macduff, Highlands
“The Bosun’s Dram” – 1997 single cask from Bunnahabhain, Islay
“Peat Smoked Herring” -2001 single cask from Bowmore, Islay
“Lemon Zest” – 1998 single cask from Auchentoshan, Lowlands

Each cask has been selected and named by the Wemyss tasting panel, under the watchful eye of industry aficionado Charlie Maclean. There are only a few hundred bottles from each cask and the suggested retail prices range from £65 to £75. These bottlings will be available in selected retailers in the UK, EU and key Asian markets.

William Wemyss, Founder and Managing Director at Wemyss Malts, commented: “We are delighted to bring yet another selection of excellent single casks to the market. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to source high quality single casks to continue to refresh our list with exciting new whiskies, so we are thrilled to present these releases.”
