The Dutch firm Van Wees has been in the wine and spirits business since 1963. How they ended up in the whisky world is a great story that also starts in that year with a sunken ship in the port of Rotterdam. Years later, Van Wees started their own bottlings in the series 'The Ultimate Single Malt Scotch Whisky Selection', simply The Ultimate. And since then around 1000 bottlings have appeared under that label. The company always tries to keep its bottles affordable.
What can we say? Every year around this time Van Wees comes with a Saint & Peat bottling of a peated Islay single malt whisky. They are always young single malts, so that the price can be pleasantly limited. A great and also funny gift!
Another one in Van Wees' The Ultimate-Cask Strength series, this Arran single malt whisky. It is 10 years old and it matured on a bourbon barrel. Van Wees always tries to keep the price for its bottlings under control. Here again they succeeded.
With this Glenlivet single malt whisky, Dutch bottler Van Wees releases a hefty bottle: this primal Speysider matured for 12 years on a '1st fill' sherry cask and is bottled at a cask strength of almost 65%. To strong? You can always add a little water!
Although one of the larger single malt whisky distilleries in the Speyside, Dailuaine is not very well known. They hardly release distillery bottlings. So we have to look at bottlers like Van Wees, with this 21-year dram, for example, at 46%.
The Speyside Glen Elgin distillery stays modestly in the background with its single malt whisky. Then this bottling is a good option to get acquainted. 10 years old and aged in a bourbon barrel, Van Wees bottled it for a nice price.
A special feature of the Mortlach single malt whisky is that it is not distilled twice, nor three times, but 2.81 times. Perhaps this causes the characteristic 'meaty' notes in this Speyside malt? This bottling is 10 years old. At 46%.
The Brackla Distillery has been around since the early 19th century, and the 'Royal' was added in 1835. And yet Royal Brackla single malt whisky has never become very famous. The vast majority disappears in blends. But this 9-year-old bottling could escap
Another fine offer in the series The Ultimate - Cask Strength from Dutch bottler Van Wees: a 23-year-old Glenburgie single malt whisky for a very reasonable price! The Speyside malt matured on a bourbon barrel and is bottled at cask strength (59.4%).
Highland distillery Fettercairn has been producing single malt whisky for almost 200 years. Especially with a number of independent bottlings, Fettercairn scores quite high on Whiskybase. This is also an independent bottling, 12 years old and at 54.1%.
Dutch bottler Van Wees releases this 10-year-old Pulteney single malt whisky in their series The Ultimate - Cask Strength. Old Pulteney is one of the most northerly distilleries in Scotland, and one of the oldest. A true Highlander. (58.6%)
With a bottle of this Caol Ila bottling in the The Ultimate series by Van Wees you get a surprisingly robust Caol Ila for this price. This peated, fruity single malt whisky has aged in a bourbon barrel for 8 years and is bottled at 46%.
The standard single malt whisky from the Edradour distillery is not peated. For the enthusiast, Edradour releases a peated malt under the Ballechin brand name. This Ballechin matured for 11 years in a sherry cask before it was bottled by Van Wees.
In 1828 Cameronbridge was the first distillery to make grain whisky. And they still do it. A good example is this 34 year old grain, matured on a bourbon cask, bottled by Van Wees in an edition of 177 bottles. At 54.9% cask strength.
At the average liquor store you will not easily come across a Benrinnes single malt whisky. The distillery itself hardly produces any bottling. Fortunately, there are bottlers like Van Wees who do, like this malt that aged for 14 years on a bourbon cask.
With this 7-year-old Glencadam single malt whisky aged on bourbon cask, bottler Van Wees (The Ultimate) puts down a real 'summer whisky': fresh and fruity, yet with some body. A pleasant dram for a reasonable price. 348 bottles came out of the cask.
