Category: Speyside Single Malt Scotch

Date Tasted:
Country: Scotland
Alcohol: 40%
Bright golden amber color. Nutty, grainy aromas and flavors of butter sautéed almonds, leather and wet clay, dried fruits and ancient grains, and chocolate caramel bar with a supple, bright, fruity medium body and a tingling, engaging, medium-length finish conveying accents of peach tea, cedar mulch, and gravel finish. A nicely sherried and delicate Speyside malt.

Speyside refers whisky made by the 50+ distilleries near the river Spey in the Scottish highlands. These distilleries are noted for their use of refilled, ex-Sherry casks in the maturation of their whiskies. The Sherry casks imparts telltale fruit and nut tones to the final whisky.
