Reviews for The Hive 12 Year Old (Wemyss Malts)
Chasing Hibiki...
I've been looking at blended scotch after the increasing trickiness in trying to get hold of our favourite Hibiki Master Select and also for their relatively lower cost.
This is a surprising and very delicious option. The nose is a little off-putting as it's quite heavily sherried and sulphurous, but the palate is very different, sweet and creamy and, unsurprisingly honeyed. I expect to have a bottle of this on my shelf for some time. A beautiful blend.

Below average.
Rather a harsh aftertaste. Not among the best whiskys.

Great Blend
A nice bottle for the price. Very very smooth and a great flavor. Bought it on a whim and was stunned by the profile. Beautiful golden color and if you like honey, then you owe this bottle a visit.
