A sweet and sensational Scotch from Speyside.

"Nomen est omen" said the Romans, which roughly translates to "If your name is Titus, you're probably cool." So, when Wemys Malts put out the flavorful trio "The Hive", "Spice King" and "Peat Chimney", everyone know what to expect: sweet, spicy and smoky expressions to blow everyone's minds. They all share the base, which is a fabulous mixture of ten different single malts of various ages and origins (Highlands, Lowlands, and Speyside). Then, the magic happens, and distinct Whiskies are created. The Hive, which isn't even trying to be subtle about its flavors with its color, its name and the bee on its label, excels with Speyside signature malts added to the core, bursting with citrus and honeyed notes.

The Hive 12 Year Old is bottled at 40% and its honey yellow gold color is so alluring you'll probably have a few drunk and confused bees in your house. But don't worry, this isn't a syrupy and sweet mess. The honey tones are wonderfully understated and balanced with slight spice notes, which makes for an amazing and complex sweet Scotch. It won an International Spirits Challenge silver medal in 2012, too!

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
