SPEY 18 Year Old single malt Scotch whiskey from the Speyside Distillery Company. Matured in sherry butts. Limited release of 1,500 bottles.
The aroma and taste of a rich fruit salad in a base of walnuts, fresh cream and berry fruits burst on to the tongue! Sultana raisins, home-made fudge, Granny Smith apples and pear drops all jockey for position! Gradually hints of dark chocolate and vanilla take over. On the tongue this whiskey is deliciously sweet yet delicately balanced by bitter dark chocolate. The taste gradually fades in a long fruity finish leaving you ready for more.
