Insider knowledge: Speyburn 8 Year Old 2004 - Provenance (Dougas Laing) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Speyburn 8 Year Old 2004 - Provenance (Dougas Laing) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Ground almonds and buttery toffee. Thick malt, allspice and vanilla.
Palate: Fruity and toffee-rich. Vanilla fudge, black pepper and apple peel.
Finish: Long finish with notes of Scottish tablet and spice.
Overall: A beautifully malty whisky.
