Independent bottler Wemyss Malts has released three new blended malts.
The Batch Strength blended malts have each been made using a selection of casks of single malt whiskies from over ten Scottish distilleries; each is said to have used signature malts to “define their flavour and aroma”.
The first three Batch Strength blended malts have been assigned Batch no.001 and include The Hive Batch Strength 001 (54.5% ABV); Spice King Batch Strength 001 (56% ABV); and Peat Chimney Batch Strength 001 (57% ABV).
Each has been bottled non chill-filtered and at the strength which Wemyss said suited the character of each expression.
William Wemyss, founder and managing director of Wemyss Malts, said: “Our new Batch Strength blended malts consist of just 6000 bottles each, providing the whisky enthusiast and adventurous consumer with more variety in their choice of blended malts.
“Our Batch Strength range is intensely enjoyable neat, with ice and makes the perfect ingredient for quality, short whisky cocktails, such as the Old Fashioned or Rob Roy.”
