Speyburn 10

speyburn_274x540-10yo

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whisky differently from me.

Colour:

Light gold.

Nose:

Vanilla, a touch of citrus and some honey.

Palate:

Vanilla and toffee with a touch of lime citrus and then a bitter edge.

Finish:

Vanilla and then a touch of citrus again, slightly nutty.

Notes:

Pretty underwhelming to be honest. I struggled to get much out of it, particularly on the nose. At about £30 a bottle I’d rather pick something else up – thankfully I just got a sample of it in a set. On their website they describe it as “Bold flavours and a long, smooth finish”, well I’ll agree that the finish is smooth but I certainly wouldn’t describe any of the flavours in this as bold!

TASTING NOTES

COLOUR:

Pale gold with amber highlights.

NOSE:

Fresh, clean with a hint of lemon.

TASTE:

Medium bodied with hints of toffee & butterscotch and a long, sweet finish.

A global favourite, Speyburn 10 years old is ever the crowd-pleaser.
