Wemyss Peat Chimney 12 Year Old Blended Malt Scotch Whisky. Edinburgh, Scotland. ABV: 40.00%. Tasted at Helvetica.

Comments: Wemyss are noted for blending together malt whiskies, with this release being a vatting of 16 different whiskies. The peatiness in this blend comes from a 12 year old Islay malt. I was impressed at the smoothness of this one, particularly the cool smokiness – very easy drinking.
