WEMYSS FAMILY COLLECTION is a series of blended malt Scotch whiskies crafted from the Wemyss family’s own selection of maturing cask stocks. In the never ending search from quality, the Wemyss family have in the past decade been sourcing newly distilled spirit from the foremost Scottish malt distilleries to mature in casks carefully selected for the extraordinary influence they impart on Scotch spirit.
Each release of the Wemyss Family Collection has been carefully chosen from the private reserves of Wemyss family casks, with the guidance of top industry professionals including Charles Maclean. The whisky is blended and bottled only when the spirit and wood are in complete harmony to create a quality blended Scotch malt that showcases a defined and flavourful style of whisky.
A fresh, bright nose with vanilla and coconut notes that weave amongst the nutty and fruity spirit to evoke the aromas of freshly bloomed gorse flowers, geraniums, honey nut cereal and roasted cashew nuts.
The initial top notes are that of rich porridge sweetened with floral honey. The mouth feel is smooth and creamy with a mild spice and tingle on the palate and the flavour of desiccated coconut.
Medium length with lingering coconut and vanilla.
SELECTING THE FINEST SPIRITS OF SCOTLAND
We selected spirit from two northern Highland distilleries; the first had floral and citrus spirit flavours and the second was deeper and richer with malty characteristic.
SOURCING THE BEST IN OAK CASES
The two Highland malt whiskies were matured in a combination of 1st fill bourbon barrels and hogsheads to transform the spirit character with light and creamy American oak led flavours.
HAND SELECTED ONLY WHEN THE SPIRIT AND WOOD ARE IN ABSOLUTE HARMONY
The whiskies chosen to blend as our third Family Collection had fantastic coconut and vanilla flavours.
EXPERTLY BLENDED TO REPRESENT A SINGULAR STYLE OF WHISKY
BLOOMING GORSE represents the gentle, lighter style of the Highland region with complex floral and American oak cask flavours making a great aperitif whisky.
