User Reviews of the Speyburn Bradan Orach

Mr Vincent Taylor

In my mind it is one of the best I have ever tasted, if not the best Vincent Taylor

24th August 2014

Good value

Not sure what the moaning is about. Look at the price tag and show me better value pound-for-pound. It has all the markers of a classic Speyside whisky.

Does what it says on the tin

Literally, this whisky does what it says on the tin. It's a youngish NAS single malt from Speyside that has a good quality to price ratio and gets the job done when you're looking for a refreshing, summery dram. Really don't understand the snobbery in some of the comments.

Worst malt

Bought this on special offer £17.99 at my local wine merchant Money down the drain

REAL WHISKY

I have travelled past Speyburn Distillery a few times over the years. Its pagoda rises out of the small glen, an enchanting sight, so 2 years ago I took a walk up the glen to get the full view. A delightfuly small distillery, I walked around and chatted to a few workers, all delightfully friendly. The only strange thing is that the distillery is on the Broadburn, that runs into the Spey, a few hundred yards away, I suppose it a better selling name. Anyway, over the past years I have managed to empty a few bottles, I find it an excellent dram, full of original, special flavours. I am not one for all these tastes some people get, fried eggs, chicken soup, haggis, red duke tatties et al, THIS DRAM TASTES GREAT AND IS WELL WORTH TWENTY QUID.

Fresh and youthful

Despite what some other commentators think, not all whisky has to be big and bold with lots of maturity or sherry cask character. This is an easy-drinking entry-level dram that does what it says on the tin - it's a youthful speysider matured in bourbon casks, light, fresh and understated. And the price offers good value.

flavour & quality at a good price

Having been a whisky drinker for almost 30 years i would say i know my malts and this less known whisky should certainly be better known given the high quality and flavour - a good whisky at a reasonable price is hard to come by and would join the reviewer that posts 'give this one a chance'

9th April 2014

Give this one a chance

The 10 year-old Speyburn is better, yes, but for something to buy between paychecks this is a very serviceable single malt. As a Highland there's no smoke or peat. Very noticeable sour apple and pear essences in the nose and a delightful overlay of hazelnut on the palate. The finish is a bit harsh, but a small splash of water neutralizes that without compromising the flavor. Too much.

18th February 2014

Terrible

Better scotch can likely be wrung from a hefty scotchsmans cod piece after a hot summers day.

13th February 2014

Very likable

I'm new to scotch but have found this to be a very smooth enjoyable dram. I like the hints of apple and pear in the nose and the nutty overlay on the tongue. I will definitely try their other bottlings!

9th February 2014

Terrible

Had this a a whisky club tasting a while back. No one liked it, most of us poured it down the sink. Just an overall undrinkable whisky. Avoid.

16th January 2014

We'll then...

I received a bottle of this from a "Secret Santa"... I don't have any known enemies in the workplace and can only assume the spending cap of $25 is why I received this. Now I am hesitant to even open the bottle. Hell in college I would drink anything! Then again I also had sex with a rather larger (although cute in the face) young lady following a bender. Let's have a sip, shall we......... 15 minutes have elapsed- i will. It speak ill of something that someone, somewhere for some reason takes pride in making, so....................

Love the Speyburn 10yr, hate this stuff

The Speyburn 10yr is my favorite whisky, but the Bradan Orach is really not drinkable at all. They allowed too much of the bad cut during distillation. Too bad! I wouldn't have minded if it was just young and spirity, but this stuff is horrible.

Nice!

25th November 2013

Yuk!

It was shite!

13th October 2013

Wretched Swill

No depth of flavor or warmth here at all. It just leaves me disappointed, and pissed off that I only have this to drink for the rest of the night. I don't even typically review products online, but this one just really sucks.

8th September 2013

Keep away

This is cheap liquor, not cheap single malt.

26th August 2013

Total Novice

I liked this stuff. Not harsh, not unpleasant and very reasonable price. Much better than the cheap blends, in my very amateur opinion.

21st August 2013

No thank you

I don't know which one is worse.......life in prison or have to drink that whiskey, the positive sight of this is you are or have had someone alcoholic in your family I can guarantee you that there is no need for you to check in yourself in rehab just have yourself an entire bottle of this s***, by the end of the bottle you won't be an alcoholic anymore

22nd July 2013

Disrespectful drink

I think that for you have a better understanding of the terminology you have to try this s***, I rather to be stabbed by a homeless heroine addict than drinking this. I had the impression that this was distilled in plywood barrels. Oh s*** f*** the oak that was responsible for this tragedy. The best to described would be "the perfect gift for your ex wife after being divorce for 10 years". This has to be illegal I am currently. Doing a research on that one

22nd July 2013

McPherson, Chicago

The nose is an interesting one with honey, green apples, citrus and vanilla. On the palate, it is bright, spicy, with honey, a hint of cereal, light oak and proto-coconut. If this whisky is 'matured' in a second fill bourbon cask, the cask's influence is underdeveloped producing a loudness in spirit with a very short finish This will be the first pour on a whisky flight for visitors who don't know Scotch.

12th May 2013

Unpleasantly astringent

Tasteless and with a very astringent finish. Who on earth would give this five stars? Employees from the Speyburn marketing department that's who. Don't believe everything you read on the internet.

28th April 2013

Entry level single malt

See above

9th April 2013

Entry level single malt

Very harsh on the palate. I mix this with club soda and enjoy as a blend type of scotch.

9th April 2013

Very bad whisky.

Somewhat like I imagine distilled cardboard must taste like. Not even cheap at 20 quid! Any cheap blended whisky has more going for it than this.

21st February 2013

Nasty.

Dreadful stuff. Ended up with a litre of this rubbish because of these positive internet reviews. Shame on Speyburn for selling this stuff and calling it whisky. Flavourless and depressing to drink. I'm not an alcoholic so I'm not particularly interested in downing white-spirit so I might use it one the drains.

21st February 2013

rating as above...

forgot to do the stars...

Nice budget session dram

Not the finest of malts, but given the cost and its decievingly subtle flavour it makes for a good 'session' malt. Quite pleasing on the palate, initially appearing a little mild, there is a nice smooth creamy flavour to be had once aired a little, what it lacks in absolute complexity makes it a nice dram for grazing along with through the evening, enjoying the subtle flavours without the 'burn' of a more intense malt. The more I drink the nicer it gets, and doesn't suffer so much from the issue of a bottle opened months previous losing its edge. For the price is reccomended. If you like this then you must try Strathisla, glengoyne 10yo, or macallan fine oak 10yo, and vice versa.

Speyburn Bradan Orach

Having only just begun to savour the delights of various single malts, my wife bought a bottle of Speyburn, and I was surprised at this no age example. The smooth taste and the fresh after tastes that gave me the enjoyment I experienced, without any harshness on the tongue, will be a private pleasure for some time.
