Speyside’s Finest 43

Score: 94 points

I’ve always been partial to single malts from a certain distillery located near Aberlour, just off the A95 in Speyside. In this case, the distillery cannot be named, but it’s produced a malt that would do its owners proud! The nose is slightly heathery with a touch of dried grass and a slight hint of peat. It’s spicy with notes of cinnamon that fade to an oaky smoothness with a hint of lemon. The finish is dry and sweet, with a touch of dried fruits and a nice warmness.
