    • Gloriously fruity and flowery

      Verified Purchase

      Irresistibly, gloriously fruity and flowery - miles away from my usual tipple, which tends to be at the far end of the Islay scale – plenty of tarry ropes, creosote, charred timbers, peat, TCP and west coast smoke house. A big step up from the ‘standard’ Nectar Grove, and well worth the slightly higher price. Huge waves of lychees, tangerines, mandarin oranges, nectarines, pears and red apples, all wrapped up in sweet-scented flowers.

    Description

    A blended malt Scotch whisky from distilleries across Scotland, bottled at "batch strength" and finished in a Madeira wine cask. Noted for its intense fruity charachteristics, such as dried stone fruit, ripe tangerine and sweet pastries.


    • Colour: Rose Copper

    • Nose: Dried stone fruits such as peaches, nectarines, apricots and kumquats appear on the nose. Sugar coated hazelnuts, Jordan almonds as well as floral hints of rose water and geranium stewed tea. Deeper notes of custard tart and freshly baked baklava round off the intoxicating bouquet.

    • Palate: Seville orange flavoured caramel, rich vanilla ice-cream and sugary; like freshly fried churros or a Crème brûlée. The fruit notes appear as stewed peach, banana and nectarines and all make a punchy entrance on the palate thanks to the 54.%abv.

    • Finish: A mouth coating texture that allows complex spices to build such as crystallised ginger, cinnamon and saffron threads.


    What does Batch Strength mean?
    At Wemyss Malts we refer to batch strength as the final resting alcohol by volume (abv) of a whisky that has been adjusted by water or is the blend of 2 or more casks at different alcohol by volume.

    Why Batch Strength and not Cask Strength?
    Cask Strength refers to a whisky that has had no water added to it post maturation. This strength can range from the high 60% percent to as low as a natural strength of 40% depending on how much alcohol has evaporated. When it comes to blending, most blenders fix their whisky samples to a set abv instead of blending with cask strength samples as the casks may change in abv between the time the test, small-scale blend has been created and the full-scale blend is finalised. Therefore there are very few examples of cask strength blended Scotches or blended malts. We made the decision to pick a higher abv than 40%, 43% and 46% to a higher strength that suits the unique flavours of the recipe. Different aromas and flavours compounds are released at different alcohol concentrations and the drinker is free to dilute the Batch Strength whisky as they see fit, adjusting the strength and opening up the whiskies character further.
