This no-age statement expression was created to offer an additional peaty dimension to the Wemyss blended malt range. Kiln Embers is also non-chill-filtered and bottled at 46% abv.
Like the rest of the Wemyss Malts blended malts selection, Kiln Embers is named after the whisky's natural flavors and aromas. The whisky's name and gift box are inspired by the barley malting process where peat is added to a kiln to develop the smoky flavors found in this whisky. 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.
William Wemyss, Managing Director of Wemyss Malts, commented: "When I started this business in 2005, I never envisioned the amazing breadth of flavors to be found in whiskies. Our new "Kiln Embers" is even smokier than our existing smoky favorite Peat Chimney and is a fitting celebration of our ten years in the industry."With a limited release of just 12,000 bottles globally (2,400 allocated to the US market)
