15 reasons to fall in love with Speyside.
 
Founded by John Hopkins in 1897, Speyburn Distillery offers the authentic Speyside flavor, concocted through tradition and modern know-how. The story goes that the very same year Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee. Hopkins and his crew began the production in November, so the first fillings could be stamped with the Queen's year. The god trickster Murphy made sure everything went wrong and the team managed to fill just one butt before January 1. Production is much better these days and the Single Malt with Granty Burn water source in its DNA is the ninth best selling Single Malt in America. Speyburn is both a wonderful intro to the world of Scotch or a delightful dram for seasoned buffs.
 
This particular expression of a Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky spent fifteen years in American oak and Spanish oak casks. Its character is pure Speyside and is incredibly drinkable. It won a silver medal at the International Wine & Spirits Competition 2017, and they were correct! If you loved Bradan Orach, it offers a similar flavor profile, with more depth and complexity.

Martin
Martin,
The view is a nice amber tone with the initial nosing of spice and honey with bits of fruit. Tasting reveals some hints of cocoa, honey, a bit of pear, orange and some caramel. A thick sweet flavor that lingers. The flavor gets a bit heavier after the second /third tasting. I enjoyed this “chewable” flavor.
 
Mathew
Mathew,
Almost too sweet, with a big thick honey like opening followed up by a spicy fiery kick. Hints of smoke and fruit in the finish. I almost wish it were drier.
 
Collin
Collin,
Tastes like a generic Speyside scotch, and I don’t mean that in a negative way. The smoke is secondary to the fruity flavors, which is enjoyable, but nothing exemplary about the taste.

Soren,
Very typical but very nice Speyside whisky

Michael,
Was a bit sweet for my tastes but very smooth and well crafted.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Raisin prominent on the nose, with a citrus and spice undertone. Initially spice forward on the taste and then comes the citrus. The longer I sipped the more spice I detected and some smoke. Not bad, but did not stand out.
