GLEN SPEY 1990 AGED 25 YEARS

GLEN SPEY 1990 AGED 25 YEARS



Whisky Info

More Details

Rare as a single malt, Glen Spey is used in some major blended Scotch whiskies, particularly J&B, but not particularly common as a single malt such as this.

This 25 year old was aged in a single oak barrel from 1990 and is drawn from just one of ninety-five full-sized bottles.


TASTING NOTES:
Nose: Vanilla, papaya and mint cake.
Palate: Milk chocolate, caramel and plums.
Finish: Sweet & medium length, with gentle oak.

 

ABOUT THE DISTILLERY

Glen Spey is the least known of four active distilleries in the small Speyside town of Rothes (population around 1,200), the others being Glenrothes, Glen Grant and Speyburn - with the silent distillery of Caperdonich (originally called Glen Grant No.2) also in the town.

Hardly released as a single malt, most production is used in the blending industry and is believed to be a component of J&B - one of the world's leading blended whiskies.  A 12 year old has been released directly by the distillery since 2001, and premium forms of the single malt are occasionally released by independent bottlers such as Hunter Laing who select single casks for bottling.

Production capacity at the distillery is small for a Speyside distillery (~1.4Million litres), and this too may be a factor why so little single malt is available from the distillery.
