Wemyss Malts Single Cask Release Briny Tangle

9 Heavenly. I'd buy it for the finish alone, which incidentally lasts for minutes.

Wemyss Malts Single Cask Release East Neuk Dunes
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 The oak hasn't fully removed the unwanted impurities, but left any longer the oak would have probably overwhelmed the palate.

Wemyss Malts Single Cask Release Kirsch Gâteau
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 One sniff and it confirms that there is going to be zero distillery character here. However it is completely blemish free.

Single Grain - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Tender hearted and loveable. Delicious.

Wemyss Malts Single Cask Release Flambé Fruit
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Fresh and fruity, then toasty and nutty, before getting down and funky. The epitome of 'flavour journey'.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Bench with as Sea View
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
8 Beautifully balanced. Gritty oak and coastal notes hint at an Islander but the oak and honey says Speyside. Grantown-on-sea?

Wemyss Vintage Malts Peat Chimney
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
4 Just like the Spice King it showed more complexity on the nose than on the palate.

Wemyss Vintage Malts Spice King
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
4 A lovely blended malt. My only gripe is that the palate is a little too oily, muting the fresher elements and complexity of the nose.

Wemyss Vintage Malts The Hive
Blended Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
4 A vast improvement on what it used to be like.
