At one point Speyburn 10 years was the second cheapest single malt (after GlenParker) in Finnish liquor stores. It is generally liked when compared to its low price. I guess you can call it the cost efficient whisky. That's not the best term when talking about whisky, though.

This had dried fruits and lemon all over it. That's why it was easy to name it The Lemon Drop Kid. If you are in a financial inconvenience like Bob Hope's character, you can always afford a bottle of Speyburn's 10 year old.

Nose: Clean with aromas. Sweet fruits and mint.

Taste: Not the lightest of fruity whiskies, medium body I think. Lemonly, a bit dry with a very soft hints of smoke.

Finish: Fruits fade away too quickly with the bitterness taking over.

Balance: Not too light, which I like but my spite for 'dried fruits in a whisky' lowers the score.
