Named after the natural tastes and aromas, the 12 bottlings include two from the Highlands: Toffee Glaze, a 1997 single cask from Clynelish, and Brandy Casket, distilled in 1989 at Glen Garioch.

From Bunnahabhain on Islay, A Peaty Punch is a 1997 single cask while Seaweed on the Rocks dates from 1991.

From Glen Scotia in Campbeltown, Merchant’s Mahogany Chest is from 1991, while Tarte au Citron is a 1998 single cask from Auchentoshan in the Lowlands.

Six are from Speyside: Citrus Burst, a 1997 single cask from Linkwood; Liquorice Spiral, 1992, from Glentauchers; Coconut and Sandalwood, 1992, from Longmorn; Pastille Bouquet, 1998, from Mortlach; Sweet Mint Infusion, 1991, from Aultmore; and Eastern Promise, 1995, from Glen Elgin.

Each cask has been selected and named by the Wemyss tasting panel, under whisky expert Charlie Maclean. There are only a few hundred bottles from each cask.

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.”
