Velvet Fig Small Batch
70cl / 46% abv
Velvet Fig Small Batch Description
Wemyss Malts have produced a small-batch blended malt that is packed with aromatic fruit flavour and a smooth, complex oak character.
The maturation recipe is made up of nine first fill ex-sherry European oak hogsheads and six first fill ex-sherry European oak butts - this equats to an ouput of 9,750 bottles! The colour is a beautiful mahogany, left free from chill filtration and bottled at a strength of 46% abv. Try it in an Old Fashioned! Equally as good neat.
Nose: blackberries, milk chocolate, walnuts and marzipan.
Palate: baked figs, Medjool dates, apricots, winter spices.
Finish: bold oak spices with a rich mouthfeel.
