The Wemyss family has announced ‘Kiln Embers’, blended with double the amount of smoky Islay malt whisky than its sister whisky, Peat Chimney.
This no-age statement expression was created to offer an additional peaty dimension to the Wemyss blended malt range. Kiln Embers is also non-chill-filtered and bottled at 46% abv. With a limited release of just 12,000 bottles globally (2,400 allocated to the US market), it is presented in a gift box and will be available in NY, MA, PA, MN and CA with a suggested retail price of $69.99.
On the nose, snuffed smoke mingles with salted lemons and sweet cured bacon, the company says, with oats and orange peel toast over embers and heathery peat on the palate and a sweet smoke finish.
