Speyburn 7yr (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)
This is a really nice way to begin the tasting celebrating the 5th Birthday of That Boutique-y Whisky Company, with the 100th label design and this Speyburn 7 year old.
Speyburn is a distillery i haven't had a huge amount of so this is one i was really interesting in trying.
A really interesting dram that starts off on the nose, for me, with lashings of soft toffee and a huge dose of juicy mandarins, youthful, spritely, full on and damn tasty.
Sold out now, but keep an eye on Master of Malt for some new releases coming soon.
Thanks to That Boutique-y Whisky Company for including me on this Birthday Tweet Tasting.
MacGowans Highland Toffee, wrapped around preserved lemons and a waxy juiciness, along with a hint of tinned mandarins (in juice) , going a little treacle scone like
Quite strong on the palate, hints of wood spice, vanilla cream, toffee sauce, tangy citrus peel strips rolled in cinnamon
spicy, pretty full on, tasty as hell though
