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 yearly release of the Wemyss Family Collection will be 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.

COLOUR
Chestnut

NOSE
Rich treacle sweetend with deep fruit notes of dates, blackcurrant and figs. Deep aromatic wood notes like an old wooden chest made from antique mahogany or chestnut.

PALATE
Toasted ginger oat biscuits with nuggets of walnut and crystalised fruits, served warm from the oven, alongside a mug of spiced hot chocolate. Fine leather mingles with damp heather buffeted by coastal sea spray.

FINISH
The wood makes its presence known leaving bittering caraway flavour, pipe tobacco and mild spice.


This is from first-fill Sherry hoggies – and you know I’m a sucker for those. Elegant, layered, rich and balanced – and again for less than 50 notes. I’ve had whiskies at five times this price which weren’t as good. 90/100
