Glen Spey is closely linked to Diageoís J&B (Justerini & Brooks) blend range. You donít see J&B much in the UK, it is mainly for export, and is very big in Koria. Glen Spey has a relatively small capacity (1.4 million litres) and this 12 year old Flora and Fauna release is the only official bottling. This is a straight up honest Speysider
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: A sherried mocha maltiness. Hot cross buns. Raspberry vinegar. Slightly smoky with a hint of cough sweet and more than a hint of bitter lemon.
Palate: Soft, sweet, malty and rounded with fresh coconut and vanilla and a dry spiciness. As with the nose, a burst of citrus at the end as spiciness gradually becomes drier and drier.
Retails for around £40
