Wemyss The Hive 12, a Gentle Smooth and Sweet Malt Whisky – Scotch Whisky News

WHISKY FOCUS: THE HIVE AGED 12 YEARS

Until the 30th of November we are offering £10.00 off The Hive Aged 12 Years 70cl bottle and the first 12 orders will be hand signed by our founder and director; William Wemyss.

THE HIVE AGED 12 YEARS is a carefully considered selection of malty rich Highlands, citric Lowlands and sweet fruity Speyside malt whiskies all combined together to create a smooth and honey-sweet Scotch malt whisky.

All casks selected for the The Hive Aged 12 Years have been matured for at least 12 years in oak casks allowing for a clean flavor with a gentle and mellow mouthfeel.

THE HIVE AGED 12 YEARS TASTING NOTES:

AGE: 12 years old
COLOUR:  Golden bronze

NOSE: Rich and luscious, with heather-honey and dried fruits marinated in orange liqueur.  Warm woodiness and orchard fruitiness develop.

PALATE: Honey glazed spiced apples.  Dessert spices intensify with water, then sweeter notes are revealed , creamy with orange infused honeycomb coated in chocolate.

FINISH:  Rounded spice gently mellows into waxy smooth finish.

ABV: 40%

“The texture is divine and carries a ridiculous number of oaky layers, seemingly glued together with beeswax. Mixing different malts whiskies is an art form, whoever is responsible really is the bees-knees…”
