Wemyss - Velvet Fig - Tasting Notes

From the independent bottler Wemyss Malts comes a new limited edition in their blended malts range. The new 'Velvet Fig’ are specially selected single malts matured wholly in ex Oloroso sherry casks. Non-chill-filtered and bottled at 46%

The nose is warm, filled with red fruit and a sweet dense flavour of vanilla, raisins, some leather, dates and figs.  This all carriers through on the palate with some sweet but dark honey. Liquerish, vanilla, raisin, bit dry ginger bread like notes mixed with some fresh orange juice in the back of the mouth. Dried fruits, bit leather, warm, red fruit, blackcurrant and some black pepper. The finish is of medium length, with the lingering notes of the sweet and almost liquerish blackcurrant with a hint of dry soft leather. A good 7+ out of 10 for this one. Very nice dram, sweet and fruity. Thanks Wemyss for sharing a sample of it!
