Wemyss The Hive Blended Malt Scotch
Honey gold in color. This "hive" sits in a grassy meadow, heavy with the scent of floral orange blossom and ripening apples on the nose with a tingling spice dances over the tongue with zesty orange peel and the warmth of a butterscotch and honey toddy. With water, the sweetness intensifies offering toffee-dipped red apples.
"Having previously appeared in 8 and 12 year old versions, Wemyss dropped the age statement from their easygoing honey-drenched dram. Fortunately, the nose of light honey, lavender, heather, and spring blossoms confirms that its business as usual. Melon, mango, passion fruit, and a deft touch of spice give this a sweet, fruity profile. Gentle heat persists into the finish with honeyed sweetness. Its crying out for a perfect scoop of vanilla ice cream. Still a crowd-pleaser." -Jonny McCormick, Whiskey Advocate 1/1/16
