Wemyss Malts Lemon Smoke
The last in this current series of Wemyss Malts reviews, this one being Lemon Smoke, a cracking 1998 vintage dram from Islay's Caol Ila distillery.
This dram was provided to Livingston Whisky Club by the very kind staff of Wemyss Malts for a tasting and it was very much appreciated and well thought of by all who attended that tasting. The names of the bottles really do represent what is inside the bottle really well and Wemyss Malts need to be congratulated for getting that right.
Hugely smoky, do you expect any less with Caol Ila, and yet it still retains that fresh citrus note underneath, this really is a powerful and interesting dram.
many thanks once again to Wemyss Malts for their support of Livingston Whisky Club .
Huge smoke here that reminds me of arbroath smoked kippers along with a touch of sweet lemongrass and sweet fruits including papaya, mango and dragonfruit.
sweet lemongrass and lemon rind with more abroath smokies
