  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Tasted this dram during a Hunter Laing Tasting, by Mr Scott Laing, March 2017

    Very light in colour and smell.

    it states it is from a sherry butt, but i assume the cask wasn't very active.

    I found the body quite spirit-like and sharp, with luckily some fruits and vanilla

  2. didi1893 scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Solid, but nothing special.
    • Nose
      Tasting with a whisky tasting:

      Fruity with a subtle sherry note.
    • Taste
      Fruit and subtle smoke.
    • Finish
      Short and not particularly worth mentioning.

    Speyburn 2004-2015, 10yo, 46% Hepburns Choice Speyburn 2004-2015, 10 years, 46% alc.
    Bottler: Hepburn's Choice
    Expansion: Refill Sherry Cask
    Region: Speyside, Scotland

    Nose: Dry and slightly smoky, like long-ago charred wood. In addition, some grassy aromas, hay, moss and damp forest soil, also a hint of candied and slightly sour fruits.

    Palate: Still dry, slightly smoky, with caramel and forest honey, citrus (especially tangerines) and peach.

    Finish: Medium to long, spicy and creamy at the same time, also creamy sugar beet syrup and some honey, also pepper is included. Later some dry oak wood.

    Conclusion: Amazingly round for the age. This light smoke aroma is pleasantly complementary.

    85/100 points (tasted 2015)
    I thank the importer prowhisky for sample and photo!
