Wemyss Malts Glen Scotia 1991 “Merchant’s Mahogany Chest”

This is another single cask from the latest batch of 12 casks released by Wemyss just recently. If you remember, I’ve reviewed another Glen Scotia 1991 by Wemyss a few months ago -  the “Salted Caramels”, but these two apart from the same vintage, are really very different, quite excellent each in its special way. It’s so very interesting to …

Wemyss Malts Salted Caramels – Glen Scotia 1991

Campbeltown whiskies are quite rare, as there are only 3 distilleries operating (if you count GlenGyle as one). Glen Scotia is rarely seen in OB, and I’ve had quite a few nice Indies distilled there which I really enjoyed (this Kintra for example). The latest batch from Wemyss consists of 6 single casks, and three will be reviewed on the …

Another fine example of Wemyss single casks, this time Lowlander Auchentoshan from 1998, total of 294 bottles available at 46% abv (yes yes, i know. we want more). Quite a nice dram actually, from an underrated (some would say, rightfully so) distillery and the second dram from the latest batch of single casks released by Wemyss malts  in 2013.
