Kiln Embers Profile

Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Kiln Embers is, as its name suggests, a smoky blended malt containing twice the amount of Islay malt whisky than its popular peaty portfolio sister, Peat Chimney.

In keeping with the rest of bottler Wemyss Malts’ blended malt range, Kiln Embers is bottled at 46% abv without chill filtration or an age statement. Its bottler describes the whisky as sweet, smoky and toasty.
