Celebrating the whiskies of the world

Wemyss Malts

Award winning blended malts from Wemyss

Wemyss Malts has extended their award-winning blended malts range; The Hive, Spice King and Peat Chimney. Following the success of last year's limited edition, Velvet Fig, these whiskies are now available at 46% ABV and non chill-filtered.

The Hive, with its signature Speyside malt, is heavy with the scent of floral orange blossom and honeyed notes. A tingling spice dances over the tongue, a citrus juiciness lingers with a whisper of applewood smoke.

Spice King has a sweet spicy character reflecting its Highlands and Islands heart. It slowly develops revealing stewed plums and raisins followed by a hot pepper prickle buffeted by coastal sea spray. A subtle smokiness is left smouldering.

Peat Chimney is reminiscent of standing on the seashore on Islay with citrus, salt and smoky notes at the fore. A sweet smoke slowly sizzles to a softer finale.
