Founded in 2005 by the Wemyss family (pronounced Weems), the company specialises in vatting together the finest malt whiskies from different distilleries, so producing a blended malt - not a blend, as it contains only malt whiskies and no grain. 16 different malt whiskies are expertly blended together before introducing the "signature" malts to give a distinctive profile.
The "signature" malts for Peat Chimney are from Islay, giving it a subtly smoky feel mixed with sphagnum moss, but without the strong iodine hit that puts some people off Islay malts. An ideal introduction for someone who wants to begin exploring the glories of Islay.
