Speyburn 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Quite a pleasant pre-dinner dram, with light nibbles perhaps. A little shy though. Would yield more at a higher alcoholic strength or in a few years.

Speyburn 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 One of the most assertive, flavoursome examples of Speyburn I have tasted. A pretty whisky from a pretty distillery.

Speyburn 1973
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Another light-tasting malt that blossoms with age. Its flavours belie the use of a malt that is scarcely peated.

Speyburn 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.20%
8 Very restrained, but lovely gentle peat smoke.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Speyburn 21 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.50%
8 Full of flavour and interest, but the sherry and oak verge on being overwhelming.
