Speyburn 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
About this deal
Quietly matured in hand-selected American and Spanish oak casks, this is a rich, vibrant dram – the essence of Speyside in a glass. Vibrant and fruity, warm with a long-lasting finish. It is never chill-filtered nor coloured. Without prejudice to the section Liability below, the Service may be temporarily unavailable during maintenance, updates, etc. We shall make reasonable efforts to inform you of any unavailability due to maintenance or updates. The Macallan’s whisky is in demand because it’s hand produced in Speyside’s smallest stills and is of consistently excellent quality. Although this whisky has only spent 12 years maturing (the ‘double cask’ refers to American oak and ex-Sherry) it has still taken on loads of rich, fruity flavours. Juicy citrus, warming oak and ginger spices, sweet vanilla and dried fruits all swirl around in a sweet, oily syrup of a drink – enjoy this one and think of the money you’ve saved on their older expressions. Taste: Subtle with honey and vanilla, yet full bodied. Creamy and smooth with a long spicy finish. Energetic and appealing, this is the brightest member of the Speyburn range.
Our Service is an online platform which provides Members with information (e.g. bottle facts, market-indices, market values and prices) on (mostly) whisky and allows Members to add information to the platform. We do not sell, nor does the Service provide any option to buy, any alcoholic products. The finish is what kills it for me though: there’s a distinct bitterness that develops, and lasts well after the spirit has disappeared.

Unfortunately, those flavors don’t really translate into the taste of the whiskey. Instead of those fruity notes, the majority of the flavors seem to come out of those previously used bourbon barrels. There’s a small glimmer of floral sweetness at first, but then a groundswell of caramel and vanilla start to take over. Touring the distillery we were shown the original malting floor, which is no longer used, and the original malting ovens, also no longer used but they can’t do anything with them as Historic Environment Scotland says they can’t touch them or remove them so they can’t use the building for anything else. As with many distilleries in Scotland, history seeps out of the buildings as much as it seeps out of the whiskies produced there. We’ll cover these styles and more. With so much choice on offer, you could build an entire collection of Speyside whiskies and never get bored… GlenAllachie 12, 46% GlenAllachie 12, 46% Whiskybase B.V. is the Dutch private limited liability company, having its statutory seat in Rotterdam, The Netherlands and its office at Zwaanshals 530, 3035 KS Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Whiskybase B.V. is registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce under no. 52072819. When Speyside whisky spends a long time in Sherry casks it will often transform into something of a boozy, liquid fruit cake. That’s certainly the case with Glenfarclas 25 year old whisky, one of the best examples of an aged whisky you can buy and remarkably good value for one so old.
These are often rich, sweet drams ideal for after dinner sipping. But it’s also known for some incredible easy going whiskies, often described as having ‘grassy’ flavours alongside citrus and orchard fruit notes, that are ideal for those making a first foray into the world of single malt. Invest in a bottle, take a few sips, and slowly explore its flavour and you’ll also discover there’s more to it than those naysayers will admit. It has a clean, grassy taste that hints at the barley from which its made, while subtle oaky, vanilla spices show off its cask conditioning. There are also orchard fruit flavours to sweeten it up – some juicy pear and crunchy green apples – and, after a short while, you’ll find its mellow character gliding down with ease. Try it with an open mind and you’ll discover why it’s a whisky that is so loved by so many. You are responsible for all activities through your account.

Speyburn 10yo TBWC Details
Like many distilleries it was absorbed into Scottish Malt Distillers (the malt arm of DCL) but changed hands in 1991 becoming part of Inver House. It’s also a good entry-level choice for those new to single malt, making it an ideal stepping stone for those looking to test the Scotch waters, without breaking the bank. Finish: Long lingering finish, with enduring waves of enticing peppery spices and notes of sweet and creamy fruitiness. The Speyside region is in Morayshire, within the Scottish Highlands, with the distilleries distributed either side of the river Spey, hence its ‘Speyside’ name. Technically it’s a sub-region of the Highlands, and there is some confusion over where exactly some of those distilleries belong.
