2009 Berry Bros. & Rudd Glen Spey, Cask Ref 804620, 10-Years, Single Malt Scotch Whisky (57.2%)
Originally known as Millhaugh, an extension to the Mill of Rothes, Glen Spey was converted from an oatmeal mill in 1878. The distillery is one of just a handful that use purifiers on the stills, resulting in greater reflux that leads to a lighter style of spirit.
The nose here is bright and fresh, with well-woven fruit notes accompanied by light buttery characteristics and a trace of smokiness. On the palate, sweet and rounded fruit is cut through with some nice toasty notes. Lingering, elegant and charming to the last.
