Speyburn Bradan Orach
Speyburn // Highlands, Scotland
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.
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.
"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."
