At Wemyss Malts we choose the best malt whisky casks that the industry has to offer - we do this by having our 'Nosing Panel' pore over the many different casks that come in from our suppliers. We are in effect what the wine industry calls a 'negociant'- choosing, blending and bottling a small number of very fine casks for our discerning customers.
Our Nosing Panel is chaired by industry character and aficionado Charlie Maclean, author of no less than eight books on the subject. Having chosen them we then designate them for either our blended malt range or, if they're considered of outstanding quality, our Single Cask range. All our whiskies are identified by their natural taste and aromas.
Each cask that is chosen for bottling is representative of the best characteristics of its regional origins.
To many 'blending' is a dirty word, but with our family's premium wine background we believe differently.
