Description

Occasionally, we come across a cask of Whisky of which we're unable to disclose the origins. While we would usually try to avoid this, some casks are just too good to pass by.

This rich Speysider gives a near textbook example of ex-sherry butt whisky; dried fruits, wood spice and a little leather emerge on the nose. The palate is beautifully soft and mellow with figs, dates and raisins, very clean, rich vibrant honeyed notes building to an almost sherbet like mouthfeel, these powerful sherry wood flavours integrate perfectly with the high alcohol at cask strength, The finish brings more pleasingly soft sherry wood flavours with layers of honey and spice. This dram demands a thick leather armchair in which to enjoy it!

Speyside Whisky

Speyside Whisky

To some Speyside represents the jewel in whisky’s crown. Speyside is the home of legal whisky production and it’s best known examples. Around the world Glenlivet, Macallan, Glenfiddich, Glenrothes and Glenfarclas typify all that whisky, at it’s best has to offer. At it’s heart running from the Monadhliath mountains north to the sea, is the River Spey. It is the fastest flowing river in Britain, and also well known for its salmon fishing.

Speyside is the principal whisky-producing region: Speyside has within it some forty-six operating distilleries - over half the total number in the entire Scotland.

Speysides are essentially sweet whiskies. They have little peaty character They are typically highly perfumed, feminine and elegant.

The classical nature of Speyside’s malts means that a number of the finest malts are used almost exclusively for blending. It is the top Speysider’s that give good blends their ‘Top Dressing’. 

Malts such as Mortlach, Glen Elgin, Strathmill and Benrinnes are rarely found as distillery bottlings, however when individual casks are tracked down by independent bottlers such as our Own Selection Single Malt Whiskies the resultant whisky can be quite wonderful.
