Independent bottler Wemyss Malts is releasing three new blended malts to complement its award winning range.
Wemyss Malts – Batch Strength is a new range of blended malts that have been blended from a selection of extraordinary casks of single malt whiskies from over 10 Scottish distilleries, each utilising signature malts to define their flavour and aroma as the whisky names suggests.

The Hive Batch Strength 001 – 54.5%alc./vol., Spice King Batch Strength 001 – 56.0%alc./vol. and Peat Chimney Batch Strength 001 – 57.0%alc./vol. have each been bottled non chill-filtered and at the strength found to be ideal for the character of the individual batch. Each of the new blended malts delivers intensified aromas, mouthfeel and flavours due to the increased strength of alcohol by volume.
