3.0 out of 5 stars
Speyburn 10, a 10 year old speyside single malt scotch whisky from Speyburn distillery. Price : $32.99, Sampled on 3/3/15 with 1/2 teaspoon of water in a Glencairn spirits nosing glass. Aroma - Heavy prune and raisin, sharp alcohol nip, vanilla, light marzipan, perhaps some fleeting cilantro here, brown sugar and pineapple. Taste - Vanilla, fruit, fleeting cilantro again, woodsap, extremely light medicinal smoke. Finishes with a medium lingering flavor and long lingering burn. Final score : 3.5 / 5, You aren't going to find a cheaper single malt, and what you're getting is a decently high quality spirit when you account for the price you've paid. Work equally as well as a mixer for those rare cocktails that call for single malt scotch. Wouldn't necessarily purchase again, but is worth adding under your belt.
