  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    looks much older than he is and reminds me of my 1977 Glen Mhor from Singnatory (which is already empty). Solid craftsmanship, very old-fashioned, of the flavors clearly old and not new and therefore all the more exciting. Great whisky.

    It was a Speyburn 10 OA with 40% from the late 1980s.
    • Nose
      In the nose first something OBF, but then shower sticks, a great, resinous fruitiness, a little old book, very old-fashioned
    • Taste
      Then round, soft, full of that great mixture of wood, fruit and something old, a hint of leather perhaps.
    • Finish
      long, malty, slightly fruity, warm, without being alcoholic.

  2. pianoman scored this whisky 71 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Pale. Hay, wet wall paint, green apples. Salt dough, loam soil.
    • Taste
      Hay, vodka, caraway, anise. Short and bland.

  5. Ivynor scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    A rather sweet whisky, young but correct.

  6. AlecM scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: warm spives (cardamon and nutmeg) and vanilla.

    Taste: aniseed, vanilla and orange.

    Finish: long and citrusy with liquorice and nutmeg.

    Quite oily and very easy drinking.

  8. DavidUK did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Speyburn distillery is situated in Rothes, which makes it very much a Speysider

  9. Feusi scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Ahh, not bad for the price. A fruity maltiness enjoy the tongue, a rather shorter finish with nice malt and far away a bit peat and smoke.

    There are better blends on the market than this single. It's OK, but unchallenging.
