Wemyss Malts Kiln Embers, 46%

Price: $64 Issue: Winter 2015 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This is so much more than a pumped-up version of Peat Chimney; this has sweet smoke from singed green wood twigs, light honey, peach, all balanced with TCP-soaked bandages. Nothing harsh or off-putting, it's just a delight. Sweet honey, orange, generous malt, and caramel, but it's the smoke coiling its way throughout that makes the greatest impression on the palate and finish. These blended malts tend to move quickly, so grab one while you can. Perfect for winter drinking. (12,000 bottles)£42
