    Tasting Notes

    Nose: Apple Danish pastries in a dunnage warehouse. A green herbaceous note reminiscent of fresh basil flows into the dusty, musty smell that comes only from whisky of advancing years. Nose develops to assertive tropical characters. Pineapple, guava et al. under the layer of fruit there is a zesty, classic arran DNA manifesting as lemon balm. An impression of beeswax suggests a full palate to come.

    Palate: as the nose predicts, round, mouth coating and oily. The character develops into a floral hedgerow of flavour- springtime. There’s a hint of vanilla fudge giving this a chewy feeling. The tang of Arran citrus qualities remains alongside a crack of white pepper – this is still lively for being so mature, no “flatness” at all.

    Finish: fragrant cedarwood sawdust and a move towards the wood influence. Flavours drift back towards red apple as the palate starts to dry slowly. The flavour lasts a LONG time. An extremely classy dram and, as is normal for arran it is showing bags of maturity. Distillery and “aged spirit” flavours are the stars of the show here. The cask is not dominating, only complimenting. Lovely, lovely whisky and a proper example of what we have come to recognise as how ‘Arran in advancing years’ should be.

    Wemyss Velvet Fig

    Velvet Fig

    Wemyss Malts has launched a luxurious new limited edition blended malt, the new ‘Velvet Fig’ is created from carefully selected single malts matured wholly in ex Oloroso sherry casks, evoking rich autumn and winter fruits and spices.

    Tasting Notes

    • Nose – raspberries and cranberries with a hint of orange, followed by thicker notes of fig and sweet biscuits, in the back there’s also a sense of dark chocolate
    • Palate – clean with notes of reship syrup and cherry menthol, followed by the malt with honeyed fruit and oak also with a hint of dark chocolate
    • Finish – fresh and fruity with a richness and sweetness added by notes of honey
    • A perfect name for a beautiful malt. The fig element is very clear as if they’ve been baked in a sweet-pastry tart and glazed with a sweet fruit syrup.
