LCBO Note Status A Vintage Assessments Explorer's Selection!
This Single Cask Single Malt was bottled exclusively for Vintages. This fine Islay whisky is the equivalent of 15 years old, though the bottler doesn’t indicate it explicitly on the label. Wemyss Malts is an independent bottler who purchases casks from producers and then ages them in their warehouses to their schedule. As a result of the unique handling (or in some cases, such as this, single-cask bottlings), these whiskies offer an intriguing variation on a distillery’s house style. Price $ 149.95
Bottle Size 700 mL
Tasting Date vintages release - July 7, 2012
