McClelland's Single Malt Speyside
McClelland's // Speyside, Scotland
T&A McClelland's was established in 1818 as a whisky blending and export company. Morrison Bowmore began producing this range of single malt whiskies in its memory, with each expression created to represent a different Scotch region with its classic characteristics. This is their Speyside region single malt.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"Speysides are known for their rich, fruity and approachable flavors, usually medium to full bodied. This one is all of those things, perhaps a little lighter in weight than usual, with notes of toffee, cream, vanilla, caramel, dried dates, dried figs, pears, golden apples and candied orange. There is an interesting fresh apricot tartness that sears through it to cut the richness down, and a sweet floral note in the finish. Despite being a little thin on richness, it tastes like a good bang for buck from a region that can get very pricey. Would be an excellent base for a cocktail too."
