Wemyss Winter Larder 20 Year Old Single Malt Cask Scotch Whisky
20 Year Old Single Cask Scotch. Winter Larder comes from Glen Elgin Distillery, was distilled in 1991, and bottled in August 2011. The scotch is a limited edition, and only 654 bottles were released.
The flavor is woody, musty and leathery, going over as very aged indeed. There is a slight licorice note towards the end and underneath it all, that being the sole reminder of the sweetness of the whiskey’s scent, and a little bit of a bite. The character here is a mellow, settled one, with just a dab of spice to keep things lively. The finish is of middling length, and continues along the aged, woody line, but with a dash of pepper.
