Gaelic for Golden Salmon (in honour of the excellent fishing nearby in the river Spey), this entry-level malt from Speyburn has changed - in my opinion - from its early days when it was fearsomely spicy.
Itís calmed down considerably now and is a lovely dram, matured exclusively in American white oak ex-bourbon casks. Speyburn doesnít have a massive range but is always good value and their whisky is a great example of the Speyside style.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
