After trying to give this Speysider an honest going over, I find that there are no good qualities about this one. The best use is for cleaning paint brushes.

I couldn't agree more.

A friend gave me a bottle of the Glenrothes Vintage 1985 which remains my all-time favourite Speyside. So I thought I'd treat myself to a bottle of the Special Reserve to see if I could rekindle those memories without breaking the bank. What a disappointment. It smelled of white spirit and the taste reminded me of the dodgy "Scotch" we bought for 11p a bottle in 1990 Czechoslovakia.

I actually took it back (to Sainsbury's) and complained. The liquor manager was obliged to agree with me and I took home some Laphroaig instead.

Avoid.
