What's in a name? Speyburn 1989 (bottled 2013) - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon & MacPhail) whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Speyburn 1989 (bottled 2013) - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon & MacPhail) whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Sugary-coated almonds, thick malt and hints of vanilla. Thyme honey appears a little later on.
Palate: Orange peel sweetness, paired with baking spices and chocolate.
Finish: A medium length finish.
Overall: A lovely little Speysider, this is.
