Wemyss Malts Nuts about Pears 1991 (distilled at Blair Athol), 46%

Price: $150 Issue: Fall 2016 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

From Wemyss Malts' Midsummer Single Cask Releases, this bottling from Blair Athol was distilled in 1991 and bottled in 2015. Soft, sweet fruits as the nose opens—principally juicy pears. This is backed up by malt and cinnamon. Very smooth and inviting on the palate, with honey, brittle toffee, gentle spices, darker malt, and walnuts. Slightly mouth-drying in the finish, with cocoa powder and lingering spice. (312 bottles) £115
