Whisky Reviews for Speyburn Bradan Orach

- The Bradan Orach expression of single malt from Inver House Distillers?
picturesque distillery on the outskirts of Rothes on Speyside has been around
for a while in the USA but is a relative newcomer to the mainstream UK market.
Bradan Orach is Gaelic for ?golden salmon,? and is so named in tribute to the
River Spey, renowned as one of Scotland?s finest salmon rivers. This version of
Speyburn carries no age statement. Uncooked oats, mashtuns, ripe bananas and
honey on the nose. Malty on the palate, with brittle toffee, vanilla and spice
on the palate. Hazelnut when water is added. Ginger and vanilla in the
medium-length finish. In most of the major supermarkets.
- Not a very inspiring
malt. Around 20 EUR, which is dirt cheap. But I would rather spend that on a
The nose is very
malty and you can actually smell the yeast. It also has something bubblegummy,
which reveals the fact that it is a vatting of young malts (probably younger
than ten years). A hint of vanilla and pears. Peach? And then there is an aroma
that I can only describe as sun tan oil. Not bad, but far from entertaining.
It is very light and
rather sharp. Now I get apples and pears, but also loads of sugared nuts. Some
banana. Quite spirity, I must say. And it is a little too dry to my taste. Midpalate
it turns a tad bitter.
The finish is short,
sweet and sour and sharp.
- Go for a blend; this is really rough.
Sweet fruit (pears, peaches). Juicy Fruit gum. Sweet grains and malted barley. Bananas. Sun tan lotion. Touches of citrus.
Not a lot going on here. Ripe yellow and green fruits. Vanilla. More banana. Very spirity. Still sweet.
Medium, and more of the same. Fruity and grainy.
- I know no one does it, but really pour some ice in and you`ll have a wonderful drink. Sweet malt with some refreshing citrus notes, a spicy sharpness stays in the mouth.
Lemon peel, raspberries, pears, orange marmalade
Sweet. The same as nose. Vanilla, oak, hints of herbs (star anise)
