Edinburgh firm launches new range of single cask whiskies
EDINBURGH-based Wemyss Malts has released a new range of single cask Scotch whiskies.
The six-strong range includes what is said to be the first ever Wemyss Malts single grain single cask whisky and a whisky said to be the most valuable the spirits company has ever released.
The range comprises whiskies covering the regions of Islay, Highlands, Speyside and Campbeltown.
Each whisky is named after the flavour and aroma of the liquid.
The range includes Wemyss Malts’ first single grain single cask whisky.
Whiskies in the range include Lemon Cheesecake, a 1988 single grain, single cask from Invergordon; Oysters with Lemon Pearls – a 1991 single cask from Bunnahabhain on Islay; Aromatic Orange Tobacco – a 1988 single cask from Glenrothes, Speyside; Melon Vine – a 1994 single cask from Aberfeldy in the Highlands; At Anchor in a Cove – a 1991 single cask from Glen Scotia, Campbeltown; and Loch Indaal Catch – a 1982 single cask from Bowmore on Islay and the most expensive in the range.
Each is said to have been selected and named by the firm’s tasting panel under the supervision of whisky writer Charlie Maclean.
William Wemyss, founder and managing director of Wemyss Malts, said the firm is “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,” said Wemyss.
The Wemyss Malts single cask range is available from selected retailers. Only a few hundred bottles from each cask have been released with retail prices ranging from £80-£700.
