Bee-hold the sweetness of Speyside – introducing The Hive 8 Year Old!

Wemyss The Hive 8 Year Old

A few years ago I happened across the Wemyss (pronounced ‘weems’) Vintage Malt Scotch range and was duly impressed with the quality of their malts. Wemys are a small, family-owned company based just outside of Edinburgh in the county of Fife. Since the 1300’s the family seat has been Wemyss Castle, and today the family farms the surrounding lands and provides barley to some of Scotland’s most well-known distilleries. They also happen to be an independent bottler of fine Scotch, which leads us to the newest malt to appear on our shelves: The Hive 8 Year Old.

Wymyss’s The Hive is a marriage of malts from a select group of Speyside distilleries that epitomize the delicate, floral, sweet Speyside style. With a nose of honey and heather pollen and tasting notes of dried fruits, butterscotch, and dark chocolate, The Hive is one of the best blends coming out of Scotland right now. Indeed, it was voted Whisky Magazine’s best blended single malt Scotch of 2012 and racked up a score of 93 points in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.

We stocked up when The Hive became available through our distributor, because I suspect that when you try this whisky and see the price, you will be back for more. At just $34.99, there is no better bargain in Scotch right now. See for yourself what all the buzz is about!

About Denis Lynch

I am a true homegrown Irishman hailing from the only county you really need to know about, Cork. Whiskey, beer, wine and all manner of spirits are in my blood (figuratively speaking of course!). I first started my career in my Great Aunty Maisey’s pub in New Tipperary, Donoughmore, pouring pints and small drops to the auld lads after the fair. Little did I think back then that I would be taking a short hop, skip and a jump over to the U.S of A. But here I am and I have been with Vine & Table since the beginning. I am now the stores Beverage Manager and Spirits Buyer. I like to think that I have found my niche here in the US. I have a great love for all things spirits-wise and have developed our offerings here at Vine & Table to include the best Single Malt selection in Indiana. Pop in and see me for a chinwag and a small drop next time you are in Carmel. Slainte, Denis
