The nose is elegant and light. Boiled apricot and roasted almonds hints.
The taste recalls liquorice and is rather sweet and pleasant. A hint of vanilla completes the impression..

Personal Comment
The nose detects some slightly acid smells, barley mixed with acid fruits. The palate confirms this impression, andthe acidity is slightly dominant, even if it remains a pleasant whole with the other discrete aromas. A relative long finish completes the picture of this good though not essential whisky.
65/100
A second tasting confirmed the first one. The acid character of this whisky is dominating. The finish was shorter than the first time.
65/100
At the third tasting, the nose was rather pleasant and discrete, with some slight touches of citrus fruit on a bitter malt background. In the palate, this whisky is rather pleasant, without complexity but without flaw. The finis is short, but the whole is not bad, and deserves a better quotation than at first tastings.
70/100
Apperance: Pale gold Nose: Quite herbal and slightly flowery, sea-weedy and grain-like. Quite a prickle at 43% ABV. The more subtle aromas are surpressed by alcohol related aromas. Some perfumes get through. The diluted dram lends some lemon peels in addition Body: Quite light, but firm and with long tears. Palate: Confirms the nose, a little salty, sea-weedy and malty. Altogether more pleasant than the nose. It's a fresh little highlander which lacks personality. The diluted dram is a little bit more pleasant still, but not any more complex. I forgot about this one as soon as I lowered the glass.

Speyburn Old Malt Cask 18 years
Personal Comment
Quite a surprising nose, with both malty notes and some spices, completed by some yeast hints. Despite those basic components, the nose remains rather fresh and there are even some menthol notes at the end.
The mouth is quite contrasted too, with an astonishing variety of dominant tastes, going from rancid yeast hints to nice citrus fruit ones. A mix of sweet and sour notes.
The finish is rather long and keeps the memory of too ripe citrus fruits.
An amazing whole.

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
