The new 'Velvet Fig’ comprises specially selected single malts matured wholly in ex Oloroso sherry casks, evoking rich autumn and winter fruits and spices.
|Wemyss Malts launches limited edition Velvet Fig|
As per all previous releases in the Wemyss Malts blended malts selection, Velvet Fig is named after the whisky's natural flavours and aromas. The natural mahogany colour has a depth and richness that comes from the quality sherry casks selected. The generous nose is abundant with rich fruits bound with sweet mead and warm leather. The palate has luscious golden sultanas, soft fig and Medjool dates, spiced with nutmeg and ginger and yielding sweet chestnut and toasted walnuts in the finale.
Commenting on the new release, William Wemyss, Managing Director of Wemyss Malts, said: “We are thrilled with the new Wemyss Malts Velvet Fig blended malt as it will provide a unique, yet complementary addition to the Wemyss blended malt range. Velvet Fig is sure to be a favourite with those who have a passion for sherry cask matured whiskies or are looking for the perfect festive whisky."
Wemyss Malts has created this no-age statement expression to diversify their existing line-up and is its first blended malt to be non-chill-filtered and bottled at 46% ABV. With a limited release of just 6000 bottles globally, it is presented in a gift carton and available from specialist retailers for a RRP of £40.
