    "The old Speysider" lives up to its name ... Old, solid, multi-layered, full of character, fruity and not overloaded. Once again an extremely tasty and exciting Speysider made from a bourbon hogshead, plus a perfect drinking strength with just under 46%, just pure enjoyment!

    • Nose
      Rich straw shines mysteriously in the glass, on the glass wall of my Premium Snifter there are a lot of oily and syrupy legs. Tender hazelnut tones play with dark pears and apples, nuances of caramelized sugar mix with hints of juicy apricots and mirabelles, a hint of fresh bourbon vanilla is in the air. Wonderfully old and solid, yellow, slightly dried fruit aromas are distributed in the nose and slowly stimulate the flow of saliva. Wood tones appear minimal in combination with fresh mint and meadow herbs, the nose is extremely harmonious, fruity and refreshing at the same time.
    • Taste
      The first sip flows relatively thinly over the tongue, the first impression is relatively mild and characterized by dry wood tones. In a matter of seconds, the entire mouth fills with chubby warmth, minimal wooden sharpness tickles the tongue, a pinch of white pepper spreads gently on the tongue and massively stimulates the salivation. Dark and dried fruit aromas are released from the pleasant sharpness, mint rises before walnuts and hazelnuts slowly spread on the tongue and line the palate with slightly tart foliage and wood tones. Dried meadow herbs are released from the slightly tart wood tones, the dark yellow fruits return, apricot and pear play with each other, subtle sharpness massages the inside of the cheeks, the flow of saliva is almost unchecked.
    • Finish
      Old mint warmed the palate, a handful of hazelnuts and walnuts stuck to the palate, slightly grassy apples detached from old oak and soil covered with leaves. the mouthfeel becomes buttery and slightly greasy, a mixture of yellow fruits, mint, caramel, butter, wood and dried herbs turns a final lap of honor before the aftertaste slowly evaporates and only a greasy film of wood and nut remains on the tongue.

    Received a 90/100 on whiskynotes.be:

    The Old Speysider 27 yo 1992 (46,3%, Svenska Eldvatten 2019, refill bourbon hogshead, 257 btl.)
    Nose: a great mix of yellow plums, gooseberries and pineapple, with mint and herbs. A good dose of wax and resin too. Honey and almond biscuits. Some bready notes too, alternating with banana and vanilla. Mouth: more tropical now, highlighting the pineapple as well as mango and a little passion fruit sorbet. Lime and lemon, a touch of jasmin and Earl Grey. Herbal touches and white pepper. Waxy notes. Vanilla and honey (of course). Finish: medium length, still on pink grapefruit and papaya, herbal notes and peppery oak.

    Fans of tropical fruits, this one is for you. Actually it’s rather close to these undisclosed Irish 1991s in a way. Recommended. Around € 210, mainly found in Sweden and Germany.
