....... a hard to find Malt, this Speysider is one or the components of the Dewar's range of Blended whiskies.
Characterful and well regarded, it can be an excellent and intriguing whisky but also unfortunately, bottle standards vary a lot!
My own exposure to this one was a recommended bottle from those experienced people at Loch Fyne Whiskies in Inverary, and it was Andy at the shop who advised on a 15 y.o. Dun Bheagan bottling of cask 3640.
It was a satisfying 'whispering' Malt of great softness/richness and complexity with
a delicate fino nose, buttery arrival and sustained elegance. 89/100
The bottle in this picture was originally produced for staff members but some might be found at specialist shops.
