The speyside edition of Diageo's classic malt range. A very decent although slightly cliche (and overproduced) malt which seems to be struggling to keep up with demand

  • Nose: Sweet malt, touch of toffee, smoke fragrant, rock salt, sea air. With water slightly beefier toffee with more citrus, smoke is gone and salt less prominent

  • Pallet: light body, sweet again, smoke, tangy citrus, loads of fruit flavours probably stone fruit. With water reasonably spicy more prominent fruit notes with less toffee sweetness

  • Finnish: salt and fruit returns, dry slightly crisp finish. With water feels richer, citrus flavours linger a bit longer.

  • Mark – Neat: 8.2, with water: 8.2

a perfectly decent malt. great for beginners as it opens up a wide range of flavours with relative ease i do think it is beginning to suffer from its huge production and would recommend buying the 70cl bottle as opposed to the 1L as it can flatten out over time in the big bottle.
