Wemyss Malts Summer Fruit Cup 1998 (distilled at Auchentoshan), 46%

Price: $107 Issue: Spring 2015 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This is the Lowlander among Wemyss Malts' dozen single cask releases for the fall of 2014. Maturation took place in a bourbon barrel, which yielded 295 bottles. Tinned peaches in syrup, caramel, mild vanilla, and damp tweed on the nose. Medium-bodied and intensely fruity on the palate, with apricots, raspberries, and ginger. Fruit notes linger in the finish, with spicy milk chocolate.£70
