Long time since I wrote a review, as I'm currently making some space in my cabinet for a few new bottles. So this is a review of an easy cheap NAS. Speysider, known as Heart of Speyside from the BenRiach distillery.
Nose: Fresh nose with soft elements of heather, grass and honey. soft undertones of salt and oak wood with a touch of spice. Very clean.
Mouth: fruity notes, soft and slightly buttery on the palate with once more hints of honey and heather. Tones of oak wood but not overly powerful and a whiff of pepper and soft smoke.
Finish: Stronger in the finish with powerful notes of pepper, sweetened up with a teaspoon of honey.
Harmless and overall pleasant, don't expect a complex majestic dram here for this price. But probably one of the better cheap entry-level whiskies out there.
