.wemyss malts – the hyve – 12yo

40% abv, €40, single malt, non-chill filtered

Nose: sweet (sickly), eating cotton candy at the cotton candy stand, banana foam candies, pear drops, a freshly filled candy store, honey, clover honey, honeycomb, bees-wax, citrus, tangerine-peel
Palate: citrus, orange-peel, marmalade, tangerines, sweet, honey, honey-comb, candle-wax, cotton-candy
Finish: bitter as marmalade, semi-dry, medium long
Mark: +/++++

Conclusion: imagine stuffing yourself while browsing a candy store – this is the liquid form of that experience, until you reach the finish though… not a happy ending. I rarely do not finish a glass when I am dramming at home, but this was one of these moments. Just not the thing for me.
