The limited release 2021 Velvet Fig is a reimagining of Wemyss Malts' award-winning 2014 release.

With its velvety smooth mouthfeel, Velvet Fig is carefully blended using ex-Oloroso Sherry Butt and Hogshead casks. These European oak casks deliver a richer, spicier character to the latest version.

Non chill filtered for maximum flavour, Velvet Fig is perfect for those who enjoy a fruity malt with lots of character.

Tasting Notes

The nose is vibrant with red and black berry fruits, figs coated in milk chocolate and hints of marzipan and walnuts in toffee sauce. On the palate, the deep fruity flavours are present with ripe figs, dates, apricots, raisins and sultanas at the fore. There are also hints of milk chocolate spiced with nutmeg and ginger. The finish is luxurious with complex wood flavours along with cinnamon spice and pipe tobacco.

The perfect serve

Enjoy neat, on the rocks or with a dash of water. If you're looking for a long drink then mix with ginger ale or use as the base of a cocktail such as an old fashioned.
