Wemyss Vanilla Summer 1997/2011

by Oliver Klimek on March 10, 2012


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Honey, vanilla, apricots, pineapple, banana, candied ginger, hints of nutmeg.
Palate: Exactly the same as on the nose.
Finish: Long, fruity and creamy.
Overall: Sweet and fruity and very intense, this dram has divided the jurors at the MM Awards. Some think it’s over the top. I love it.

Rating: 92/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

I had tried it at the stand of Alba Import on the Hanse Spirit in Hamburg and I was amazed. About the same price tag as the Clynelish (because that it is) by The Maltman, but much more intense. I would have bought it straight away if I had any more space in my rucksack 😉

As I am a huge fan of Brora and Clynelish I was very curious about the Wemyss Vanilla Summer after I read your ravings about it – yesterday I bought one and it is amazing! Bold, creamy and slightly on the edge but overall after my first impressions it is tremendous value for the money and really excellent stuff.
