Speyside is home to many of Scotland’s best known distilleries.
Rothes is one of the key villages in the Speyside region and this is home to the Glen Spey distillery.
Glen Spey is one of the most modest distilleries in the region and quietly produces some really tasty single malt whiskies.
Glen Spey represents the Ghost in Clanyard Bay story, which is fitting as this distillery has been said to have a ghost in residence.
The whiskies themselves offer a creamy rich and buttery style with notes of tropical fruit and candies lemon.
A warm and long finish is long and rewarding and offers a fine insight into the Glen Spey distillery.
The Glen Spey distillery sits below the ruins of Castle Rothes, once home to the Earls of Rothes who lived there until a devastating fire in 1662.
The Glen Spey whisky distillery was founded as the Mill of Rothes in 1878 by James Stuart and Co, the buildings having started out life as an oatmeal mill.
Six years later, James Stuart purchased the Macallan distillery and in 1887 the English company W & A Gilbey acquired the Glen Spey for £11,000.
Bold and malty. Creamy and Buttery with the promise of tropical fruits.
Fruit salad with honeydew melon, nutty chocolate chip granola with spicy black pepper. With water, canned peaches come to the fore with a sweet honey and cedar finish.
Medium finish with a smooth and rounded finish. Sweet toasted oak, hints of toasted marshmallow and very soft spice.
