Published Date: 24th October 2023
Only 1500 bottles of this rare cask-strength blended malt scotch whisky aged 25 years are available worldwide.
Wemyss Malts’ Limited Collection houses masterfully blended rare malt Scotch whisky expressions, designed specifically to elevate the whisky experience. Honouring the skill, patience and passing of time in whisky making, this beautiful collection has been enhanced with the release of ‘A Quarter Passed’ an exciting new cask-strength blended malt scotch whisky aged for 25 years.
Enjoying an eloquently rich character, A Quarter Passed is an exclusive small batch release within Wemyss Malts’ Limited Collection, a range masterfully blended single malt Scotch expressions which are highly sought after with each bottling release only available in limited quantities.
Guided by a unique formula and approach, Head of production Isabella Wemyss has exclusively sourced this rare blend from single malts from around Scotland matured in exceptional American oak ex-Bourbon barrels where the spirit has gently married with the oak for 25 years. That quarter-century has now passed with the years allowing these exceptional flavours to develop.
Non-chill filtered and bottled at 53.6%, A Quarter Passed delivers a luxuriously sweet vanilla-rich dram, with hints of soft coconut, toffee and lingering spice supported by aromas of hibiscus, lemon zest and milk chocolate. With a wonderful depth and complexity, honeyed sweet nectarines, toffee, crème brûlée and marshmallow dance on the palate with a finish that’s filled with warming cinnamon spice and a tingle of freshly grated ginger.
There are only 1,500 bottles of this hand-crafted Scotch whisky worldwide - making it the most exclusive release from this award-winning brand. Commenting on the release, Production Director Isabella Wemyss, said: "We strive to create exceptional Scotch whiskies that are perfectly balanced, capture Wemyss character and leave a rich and lasting impression. This exceptional 25-year aged expression has been beautifully crafted over time with a combination of the finest single malts from Scotland’s most esteemed distilleries delivering a magnificent, multi-layered dram. We’re excited to release this latest addition to our vivid expressions, there are only 1500 bottles available worldwide so can’t imagine that they’ll be available for long!”
