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.
The initial nose is sweet and candy like; foam shrimps and strawberry bonbons. Mineralic notes emerge in the form of limestone and fresh seaside air. A mild and perfumed smoke is only hinted at like a distant beachside bonfire.
A complex battle between sweet and savoury with heather honey, cinder toffee and marshmallows. The savoury and maritime notes take form as rollmops or salted oat cakes and scallops cooked in butter with tarragon.
Burnt wholemeal toast smeared with chunky peanut butter and a peppery spice.
SELECTING THE FINEST SPIRITS OF SCOTLAND
We selected spirit from 2 Highland distilleries; the first with a long sweet peat smoke and the second with a very intense, oily and maritime peat smoke.
SOURCING THE BEST IN OAK CASES
The sweeter, smoky east coast spirit was matured in 1st fill bourbon barrels whilst the west coast Highland island in dechar/rechar hogsheads.
HAND SELECTED ONLY WHEN THE SPIRIT AND WOOD ARE IN ABSOLUTE HARMONY
1st fill bourbon sweetened and added candy notes to the east coast whisky whilst the dechar/rechar hogsheads created a spicy and resinous punch to the Highland island malt whisky.
EXPERTLY BLENDED TO REPRESENT A SINGULAR STYLE OF WHISKY
FLAMING FEAST is a complex and mouth-watering whisky with juxtaposing sweet and savoury flavours and a long complex Highland smoke finish.
