Wemyss Malts The Hive 12 Year Old Review

The Hive 12 Year Old Wemyss malts I'd seen a lot of good things said about the Hive 12 Year Old from Wemyss Malts from other bloggers and the awards in recent editions of the Whisky Magazine so I had to try it.

First impressions always count and I loved the styling of the bottle and packaging, i'd absolutely love to have the proof plate for this just like the Bruichladdich Renaissance one i have, think it would look magnificent on the wall.

The whisky itself lives up to it's name with lots of honey and sweetness and if this is the standard I can expect from Wmyss Malts i'll be making sure I try more of their range soon.

WHy not pick up a bottle yourself from Master of Malt and try it too.

Tasting Notes & Details


Super sickly sweet honey by the tonne some maple syrup banoffee pie and fresh carnations smells good enough to eat
