Boutique spirits company Wemyss Malts has released a new parcel of single-cask Scotch whiskies, including its first-ever single-grain single-cask whisky.
Each cask is a celebration of the unique and contrasting appeals of the different Scotch whisky regions and each release is named after their natural taste and aroma.
The latest release covers grain whisky and four of the regions: Islay, Highlands, Speyside and Campbeltown. They are:
- Lemon Cheesecake, a 1988 single-grain single cask from Invergordon
- Loch Indaal Catch, a 1982 single cask from Bowmore, Islay
- Oysters with Lemon Pearls, a 1991 single cask from Bunnahabhain, Islay
- Aromatic Orange Tobacco, a 1988 single cask from Glenrothes, Speyside
- Melon Vine, a 1994 single cask from Aberfeldy, Highlands
- At Anchor in a Cove, a 1991 single cask from Glen Scotia, Campbeltown.
The 31-year-old Bowmore is the most valuable whisky Wemyss has ever released.
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 £80 to £700.
William Wemyss, founder and managing director at Wemyss Malts, said: “We are delighted to continue to offer a range of single casks to include some exceptional rare whiskies. This latest release includes our first ever single grain single cask and a very old and valuable Bowmore.”
