As one of Scotland's invisible distilleries without a big reputation, Speyburn offers this 10-year-old Single Malt at a very affordable price. Obviously young, light and typical Speyside, the nose features honey, tinned fruits and mild spices with discreet floral notes in the background. Green apples, malty sweetness and hints of ginger please the palate, interrupted by refill cask bitterness and a little bit of heat in the development. The aromatic and rather short finish is easy and forgettable. Although not overly complex or inspiring, this malt still beats most blends.
