This malt makes no secret of its young age. The youthful roughness is not complemented by an awful lot of flavour, though. – Rating: 79/100

This is an unusally gently peated Ardmore, not particularly breathtaking but nice and sippable, especially as an aperitive dram. – Rating: 83/100

The enticing fruitiness of the nose does not fully translate onto the palate. It tastes quite nice but even with water there is a sharp edge to it. – Rating: 83/100

After a great nose, the palate of this peated Speyside malt trails a bit behind as the fruit has lost some of its influence. Still a very nice dram, though. – Rating: 83/100

A bit similar to the Benriach Heavily Peated, but doesn’t quite reach it. Still a very nice peated Speysider, though. – Score: 84/100

The first event I booked for the Spirit of Speyside Festival was a tour of Speyside Cooperage. It is located right outside Craigellachie, just a stone’s throw away from the distillery.
