Palm Bay International and the Wemyss family, producers of Wemyss Malts Scotch Whiskies and Darnley’s View London Dry Gins, now offer a new, limited-edition variety to complement its blended malts range. Kiln Embers is a smoky addition to the Wemyss line up, blended with double the amount of smoky Islay malt whisky than its sister whisky, Peat Chimney, the company says. This no-age statement expression was created to offer an additional peaty dimension to the Wemyss blended malt range, it adds. Kiln Embers also is non-chill-filtered and bottled at 46 percent alcohol by volume. With a limited release of just 12,000 bottles globally (2,400 allocated to the U.S. market), it is presented in a gift box and will be available in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and California, with a suggested retail price of $69.99. On the nose, snuffed smoke mingles with salted lemons and sweet cured bacon; while oats and orange peel toast over embers and heathery peat on the palate; resulting in a sweet smoke finish, it adds.
