Spey Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival 2019 Limited Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
A limited edition, single cask release to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival, which ran from 2nd - 6th May 2019. Last year’s festival bottling has been finished in a Bordeaux wine cask and bottled at 58.9% abv.
Only 350 bottles have been produced.
A light, amber orange appearance, reminiscent of “Scotland’s other national drink”, with a fresh, summery aroma of ripe brambles & blackberries.
On the palate, some initial white pepper notes fade to reveal notes of ripe berry fruits & cassis. Despite being bottled at high strength, the whisky remains soft and balanced, with no harsh notes of alcohol or tannin's from the red wine cask. Adding a few drops of water softens the initial spice, and further enhances the juicy berry flavours.
The finish is medium long length, with the flavours gently fading. An ideal summer evening dram!
