Nose Fresh, clean and aromatic with a rich lemony fruitiness Colour Pale gold with amber highlights Taste Medium-bodied with a delicate, fruity character with hints of toffee and butterscotch. A sweet long lasting finish.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Classic Speyside aromas of spicy candied orange peel, burnt earth and garrigue are offset by a honeyed smokiness. The palate shows wonderful flavors of vanilla and walnut butting heads with hints of cured ham. On the finish it is smooth, generous and well structured. (Apr 2014)

Producer
The Speyburn Distillery was founded in 1897 by John Hopkins, who also owned the Tobermory Distillery on Mull. Many locals still refer to the distillery as ‘The Gibbet’ [jib-it] because of its location near the ancient ‘Cnock na Croiche’ or ‘Hill of the Gibbet’ - an old word for gallows. Hopkins was determined that whisky would be produced to mark the Jubilee year of Queen Victoria. Workers in heavy overcoats toiled through a blizzard on the night of the last day of the year, in a stillhouse without doors or windows, to ensure that one single barrel of 1897 vintage Speyburn was made. Hopkins sold the distillery in 1916 to Distillers Company Limited, and from 1939 to 1947 the distillery was temporarily closed when the site was used to house two Scottish Artillery regiments. In 1962 Speyburn’s two stills were converted from coal-fired to indirect steam heating, and in 1967 the drum maltings ceased operation. In 1992 the distillery passed into the hands of its current owners, Inver House Distillers In spite of these changes, the distillery remains much the same as it was 100 years ago. Many of the original features are still intact – indeed still being used.
