Wemyss Malts Buttered Tealoaf Review

Wemyss Malts Buttered Tealoaf Glenrothes is one of those distilleries where I generally prefer ex bourbon or American oak matured so I'm really keen to be trying this 1997-2014 dram matured in a hogshead.

This works for me, the buttery creamy vanilla notes mix with fruits and sweetness and hints of cask char (almost burnt toast) it's really well balanced and full of all the ex American oak notes I love.

A top dram that works for me, really well.

Still available to purchase from specialists such as Master of Malt

Thanks to Wemyss Malts for the official samples.

Tasting Notes & Details


The name immediately makes you think buttery creamy notes which do come through really thick, then for me it's fresh fruits and vanilla sauce like those canned fruit salads with vanilla cream sauce before a slightly toasted bread note or maybe cask char comes through.


Sweet vanilla cream with cask char and spices that I didn't expect, sweet tinned fruit in light syrup, it's butter coming through too really quite tasty and fruity as you sip it more.


Fruity, tasty, buttery, biscuity
