  1. Shmaltclub scored this whisky 88 points Newbie

    The lovely whisky from this distillery has always played animportant role in blends, thanks to its firm body, cereals-richcharacter and understated finesse. Our bottling is a heartfelthomage to its typically biscuity but tight profile, with its drymaltiness slightly enhanced by just a hint of second fill sherryinfluence, as not to overwhelm its austere elegance. No overtwiney notes, no excesses of nuttiness: this is flowery Speysidemalt at its best, aged for decades and still very lively. Mineral,waxy, rather peppery and with a touch of fresh and fragrantorange peel notes: it starts to hint at butter biscuits and honey, butthen immediately returns to a peppery dryness, as if proud of itsaustere and quiet inclination.
