Spirit of Speyside Festival 2011 Blended Malt

by Oliver Klimek on June 1, 2011

Blended from 24 Speyside single malts – 41.3%


My Tasting Notes

Colour: Bright amber
Nose:
Grapefruit, vanilla, overripe banana, caramel, hints of wood polish and candied ginger.
Palate: Nuts, grapefruit, honey, vanilla, quinine, ginger and nutmeg.
Finish: Meduim long, bitterweeet and slightly spicy.
Overall: This blended malt has a very promising nose, but there is a distinct bitterness on the palate that I find a bit off-putting

Score: 78/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
