The Speyburn distillery is indeed built on the River Spey. "Bradan Orach" is Gaelic for "golden salmon" and they River Spey is good for fishing. Though 2 million liters are distilled each year, most of that will go into blends. The Bradan Orach is aged exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is full of rich malt, lemon, and some vanilla. There is a bit of a dirty quality on the nose, but despite the unevenness of the whisky, it is a good value for its price. The finish is full of fruity and honey tastes followed by a slight bitterness."
