Review - Velvet Fig

Another one bites the dust. Another favourite lays its bottle on the line. This Weymess Malts limited release of 6,000 100% oloroso sherry cask matured whisky has served me exceedingly well.  Sherry cask whisky is the direction that I lean and this is an excellent example.  Could it have been better.? Well perhaps an age statement?  But that aside a very good quality dram.

  • ABV 46% vol
  • 70cl
  • Price £40
  • Nose 23/25 - sweet sherry all the way with lots of dried and candied fruits.
  • Taste 20/25 - spicy fruit cake or an exceptionally mild curry.
  • Finish 20/25 - if it was instrument then this is a big low bass, fuelled by a lump of ginger.
  • Balance 21/25 - slightly muddied, more SD than HD, could be slightly better defined.
  • Total 84/100
