Master bottler Wemyss presents a BEE-autifully balanced and complex blend. The Hive.
Wemyss started out as a farm, sourcing some of the best barley in Scotland for almost a century. Today, Wemyss is a proud family of specialty craft Spirits.
Eventually — perhaps inevitably — someone on the farm said, “Hey… why don’t WE make some Whisky ourselves.” They traded grain for some fresh locally distilled neutral Spirit. The rest is, as they say, history. There are four brands under the Wemyss label, including Rimauresq Cru Classé, Lord Elcho Premium Blended Scotch, Wemyss Malts, and Darnley’s View Gin.
Wemyss Malts produces a wide range of Whiskies — from single malts through single casks and blends. But today we are talking about Wemyss Malts Scotch The Hive 8 YO. This is a tasty blend of malt Whiskies that have been married to create a waxy, honey sweet character. Thus the name “Hive,” but you got that right away, didn't you?
The blend includes a range of ages — from 8 to 10 years old. There are 16 different Speyside malts used in creating this dram. Smooth, complex, with a full mouth-coating texture. It's a contender for our favorite blended Scotch of the year.
