Vanilla-forward NAS Highlander Scotch.

Speyburn's Bradan Orach is a fun phrase to say and it has a cool meaning. Bradan orach is Gaelic for Golden Salmon, the best sort of salmon there is, and Speyburn is named after the famous river Spey, which is salmon-rich. Founded by John Hopkins more than a century ago, Speyburn offers the authentic Speyside flavor, concocted through tradition and modern know-how. Speyburn is both a wonderful intro to the world of Scotch or a delightful dram for seasoned buffs.

Bradan Orach is a divine vanilla-forward no-age-statement Scotch bottled at 40% and aged in barrels that used to house Bourbon. The nose is incredibly enjoyable, and the flavors of vanilla and honey play a harmonious taste before they bring a long and spicy finish. The Highlander was awarded many times, including with a silver at International Wine & Spirit Competition in 2017.

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavor finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Not nearly as smooth as The Glenfiddich.

Not bad considering the price.

Antti,
It is an outstanding, creamy, Single Malt Scotch Whisky with a rich birth; while a creamy & full life leads to a long & bitter death with notes of apple, pear, spices & smoke.

Sven,
How different taste is. I‘m a vanilla fan, and had some Whiskeys before, which are expected to taste vanilla. In this case it tastes vanilla/ honey and at the end apple is coming up. The first glass I drank pure, and it was good. The second I put some water in, Less then a teespoon. And that brought the taste up to a higher level. For my likings ist one of the best single malt, I ever tried. But everyone will judge it in another way. By the way: Thanks to Jason for helping to get it, even it was sold out. Done your job very patient and helpful. Cheers

Anthony,
The aromas are much more promising than the flavor. Very easy to drink due to a very light flavor at the start, going right into a bitter burn.

Kurt,
I like this. I like the smells and the flavors. The burn isnt over powering

Philip,
First let me say, it is not the greatest scotch on the market. For the price, however, it is pretty okay. It is sweet, fruity and I do feel it is more smoky than it's flavor profile suggests with notes of vanilla. However the burn was more than I expected, almost unwelcomed.. If you want a cheaper scotch, this is acceptable, but definitely not great. I had higher hopes for it.
Philip
Philip,
I think I may have been to harsh on this. As time has progressed, this cheaper scotch has caught me off guard and I find myself liking it more...So, add another star for enjoyment...
