Insider knowledge: Spice King 12 Year Old (Wemyss Malts) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Spice King 12 Year Old (Wemyss Malts) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Peppery, fruity and malty with notes of cinnamon, orange zest and hints of coconut.
Palate: Spicy with nutmeg, black pepper, toasted barley and lightly charred oak.
Finish: Rich and intense with coconut oil and malt on the tail.
