|Liquid Gold Indeed|
I was fortunate enough to get to try one of the Single Casks that Wemyss has to offer recently.
I previously did a larger write up on three other offerings from Wemyss that we all tried a while back at a NJ Whiskey Society meeting. A lot of the background of Wemyss is covered in that post, so I will not revisit it here. This post will just a be a short & sweet one with my notes on this expression.
To my knowledge this one is from Bunnahabhain and has spent 12 years in refill bourbon casks. (NCF)
These were bottled in September of 2009, and this bottle is one of only 400 available!
Specifically, this bottle comes in at a respectable 46% ABV, and looks light and beautiful!
Apperance: Very light gold
Nose: Very nutty, expected more peat, does have a bit of that hot tar scent (freshly finished driveway tar…but in a good way!)
Palate: Smoke & malt mixed with oceanic notes of salt and seaweed
Finish: Gentle and smoky with a little bit of a spicy cinnamon kick at the end
