Independent bottler Wemyss Malts has released a bountiful crop of twelve new single cask whiskies ranging from 14 to 27 years old. These whiskies were selected and named after the aromas and flavours associated with a harvest festival or a pantry of autumnal fare discovered within by the Wemyss tasting panel. Each bottling has a descriptive name illustrating the whisky’s character, are bottled in their natural colour and are non-chill-filtered.
