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.

Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Originally constructed just in time for Queen Victoria's party, distillery crews worked around the clock—including through a massive snowstorm—to get the first barrel out the door.
War is hell, even for distillers. Speyburn was closed during WWII in order to house two artillery regiments. Reports suggest that their aim was particularly poor, at roughly the same time that several barrels of Whisky were reported, "missing in action."
