“Each cask that is chosen for bottling is representative of the best characteristics of its regional origins. Wemyss meticulously hand selects each individual cask, under the expert eye of Charles Maclean who chairs their Nosing Panel. All Wemyss Single Casks are bottled at a minimum of 46%, but occasionally they come across casks of such quality that they dictate bottling at natural cask strength.”
