Whisky Reviews for Speyburn 2004
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.53 points
- Ultra clean Oloroso bomb with a high-enough age to make it genuinely interesting. Certainly doesn't display many distinguishable distillate characteristics, but who needs that when everything else works so well? The nose alone comes close to the 90-point-mark, though in direct comparison, WIDs 112536 and 119429 still seem a tiny bit better to me personally.
- A bit cautious at the beginning, but with a little water and oxygen comes the intensity. Without a direct comparison, a bit weaker than the comparable barrel no. 218.
Flowery and sweet syrup with a lot of fruitiness, red berries, spicy, dark dried fruits, oak
Lots of sweet, intense, dark dried fruit, mulled wine, very spicy and slightly dry oak
Brown sugar and oak
- An intense sherry malt that is overall without any missing notes. Very clear, modern sherry profile, which also makes it interchangeable and limitedly exciting. From that a delicious bottling anyway. Easy to drink even without water.

Very intense dryness, sherry, full bodied, peppery, oaky
Begins with dates and sweet figs. Then follows moist leather, liquorice and some furniture polish. Elderberry syrup, cherries and a very pleasant tobacco note. With some time in the glass, sour, dark berries get through nicely. The colleague has now got but also a cheesy touch. But somehow great fits. In the background is always a flag smoke, which makes this great nose very complex and complete.
Earthy entrance. Something mineral even. But full, intense and creamy. A pleasant pinch of pepper dries immediately. Followed by plum jam, tart tobacco and dark chocolate with marzipan. Juicy sour cherries and some elderberry taste.
Long, full and simply syrupy. Gorgeous! A touch of paint, something fresh and slightly cool. Before it runs out with espresso.
