Aged: No age statement
Product of: United Kingdom
Released in November 2014 as a non-age-statement limited edition blended malt whisky, Velvet Fig comprises single malts matured in oloroso sherry seasoned casks. Like other malts by Wemyss (prounced 'weems') the ‘Velvet Fig’ name was inspired by the whisky's flavour.

Clear, golden amber.
Caramel, oloroso sherry, fig and new leather with light orange zest and candied ginger. Opens up wonderfully with water with dried fruit and sherry.
Biscuity malt and burnt fruitcake with cinnamon, clove, black pepper, figs, dates and honey. Water turns to bread pudding.
Burnt fruitcake, cinnamon and cracked black pepper spice.
