Wemyss – 3 New Scotch Whisky Bottlings

Earlier ths week I received a set of three samples from independent bottler Weymss. Here are my findings:

Glenrothes 1997/2016 “Blossom Nectar

Hogshead – 50.8%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Straw
Nose: Fresh lemon, green apples, vanilla, hints of roses and white pepper.
Palate: Apples, vanilla, porridge, hints of nuts and pepper.
Finish: Medium long, slightly fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: It is difficult to believe that his whisky is already 19 years old, it tastes much more youthful. It’s a nice enough dram but there is not much noteworthy about it.

Rating: 82/100

Longmorn 1992/2016 “Persian Anise”

Hogshead – 46%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Bright gold
Nose: Honey, orange zest, ripe banana, vanilla, hints uf nutmeg and allspice.
Palate: Fizzy banana and pineapple, vanilla, lemon zest, nutmeg, hints of pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: A very nice fruity whisky with a rich and creamy mouthfeel.

Rating: 86/100

Bunnahabhain 1990/2016 “Haven Trail”

Hogshead – 46%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark straw
Nose: Stewed apples, nuts, vanilla, hints of banana, black pepper.
Palate: Toasted nuts, apples, hints of peach, vanilla, hints of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly spicy.
