Reviews and Ratings

In October 2006, Arthur Motley of Whisky Magazine gave this Scotch a score of 8.5 out of 10. The producer’s name is pronounced “Weems.” Pretty, orange/copper color; impeccable purity. Opening smells of caramel corn, honey, new leather, and baking spices are pleasing and straight forward; following another seven minute aeration stint, the ‘bouquet turns woodsy, spicy, and a bit minerally. Palate entry is chalky, sooty, and slightly metallic; mid-palate adds tastes of grain/barley, dried nectarine, white raisins, and orange rind. Finishes on the sweet side of the ledger, with noticeable touches of oil and peat. Recommended. Above average. Score: 3 (out of 5) Source: F. Paul Pacult, Wine Enthusiast

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
