Wemyss Malts – Melon Fan 1990

Wemyss Malts – Melon Fan 1990

This is the final dram of my generous prize from Wemyss Malts. It’s a 1990 Bladnoch, bottled in 2015, at 46%. Nose: Honey dew melon, oak, quite sweet, pineapple, maybe slightly sulphuric Palate: Honey sweet with oak, spicy, mango, a little leather Finish: Long, drying and spicy. This was enjoyable enough, but not my favourite of the 5 by a long way. The scores as follows: Nose: 7/10 Palate: 7/10 Finish: 8/10 Value for money: 7/10 Looks: 6/10 Giving a…

Wemyss Malts – Mocha Moment 1988

Wemyss Malts – Mocha Moment 1988

This is another indie bottling from the clever folks at Wemyss Malts. This time it’s an Invergordon single grain. Bottled in 2015, aged 27 years. It’s definitely a treat to be able to sample this as there were just 240 bottles produced. I cracked this open for my birthday! Bottled at 46% this has a really deep brown colour with really good legs. Nose: Superglue, loads of prickle, fresh ground coffee, kiwi fruit, raisins, slight hints of charred oak. Palate:…

I’ve finally found a good reason to open this rather special sample sent to me as a competition prize by Wemyss Malts themselves: it’s a Sunday and I wanted a treat! This is a 1994 Aberfeldy single cask, bottled in 2015 by Wemyss. So it’s a healthy 21 years of age. Bottled at 46% ABV. Nose: Oak, woody mango. It’s quite prickly on the nose at first. Kiwi, tinned peaches. The oak fades along with the prickle as it opens…

Wemyss Malts – Oak For All Seasons 1994

Wemyss Malts – Oak For All Seasons 1994

Another single cask offering from the Wemyss Malts folks. This was distilled back in 1994 at Braeval and bottled in 2016. Bottled at 46% ABV. Nose: Pink grapefruit and maybe some orange zest. Plenty of vanilla. You can see where it gets the title from with a good smattering of oak. Hints of coriander. Palate: Honey sweetness with sharp pepper. Then you get the buttery mouthfeel and vanilla. Plenty of oaky dryness but it’s offset with the sweetness nicely. Finish:…

Wemyss Malts – Sea Haar Bound

Wemyss Malts – Sea Haar Bound

The lovely folk at Wemyss Malts sent me a care package just before Christmas as a prize for a competition they were running. I’m opening this one first. It sounds delicious. Mind you all the others do too. I fancied something maritime though. Behind the rather enticing name given by Wemyss lies a 17 year old Bunnahabhain single cask that was distilled in 1997 and bottled at 46% ABV back in 2014. It was matured in a hogshead. Haar means…
