"Speyburn's 18 year doles out many of the classic traits that make Speyside single malts so charming. Aromas of croissant and bread crust are balanced with contrasting notes of honey and chili flake. On the tongue, the weight from the sherry cask maturation and worm tub distillation are most apparent with a delicious blend of stewed stone fruit and cracked pepper notes."
