Customer Rating
Pretty much the only expression of Speyburn on the market until 2008. The 10 year old may now have stable mates but it still keeps its place as the easy drinking centre of the range. Speyburn continues to gather quiet momentum in the wake of updated packaging and 2012's shock World Whisky Award win for the 25 year old.

    The straight alcohol taste overpowers all other tastes advertised. I struggled to get through this bottle. I may only be a scotch whiskey drink for a few years and may not have experienced all, but... try something else or spend $10 more and get some Glenlivet 12.

    After drinking this I can't believe the price easily could be an everyday after work drink.

    I pretty much agree word for word with the anonymous reviewer prior to my review I wanted to buy this because in my specialist book this whisky was written up as sweet although its score wasn't so high and I am glad I got to taste this for free recently. I would have been very dissapointed if I had bought it Pretty much a dissapointing whisky!

    Ok the good reviews convinced me to try to save 20 bucks and try this. I’m sorry, it’s just not very good. I will agree that it has some pleasant notes, but there’s just no body. It just tastes thinned. And it does lack the aroma as well. I think it’s prices appropriately.

    Can't judge this bottle by the nose up front. But it has a very balanced flavor between sweet and smoky. I agree with JJR, it seams to develop with a little sitting. A touch of warm caramel on the nose and good malty smoky finish. Their seems to be a flavor I can't identify but I like it. Can't beat the price and quality. I can't wait to smell the bottom of my glass when the last of the dram evaporates in the morning.

    Nice flavor. I just bought a bottle this evening. I'll be honest, I didn't like the nose right off the bat (thus 4, as opposed to 5 stars), however I'm a little biased regarding the nose of the less peaty drams, such as this one, so one may want to take that bias into account. I poured a dram and let it breathe for 10 minutes or so. I must say that I am pleasantly surprised. A very pleasant and interesting flavor indeed. I plan to have another dram with a cigar tomorrow evening. I think it will be a perfect complement to a smooth, yet strong stogie, like a La Gloria Cubans Serie N. Looking forward to it. Cant' beat the price on a single malt of this caliber either!

    It has a smooth and sweet start and a wee bit of smoke on the finish for a perfect combination - excellent!

    I can't afford Lagavulin and this is an excellent, affordable compromise, with nice depth to the flavor. Very smooth.

    Nose (undiluted) Yes, Some vague, soft red fruits and...prunes? Citrus waves at you after a few minutes of airing out. Quite a very restrained nose, but very pleasing to my senses, none the less. Hints of vanilla behind all of the fruity, honeyed goodness. Speyside to a "T". Palate (undiluted) The notes on the box are accurate for a change, this is fairly honeyed. A light bodied offering of vanilla, pretty sweet initially (don't worry, not like a cloying low-quality blend or anything like that), lots of caramel, does some decent drying with a bit of oak, a small puff of smoke, very shy peat, and maybe some white pepper, if that's not my imagination. This isn't the least subtle of malts. Finish (undiluted) A pretty small puff of smoke and faint, dank wood. It lingers long enough that I do not call it a low-quality affair that ends just about abruptly, but it is on the short side for a malt.

    Wasn't impressed the first time I tried it, but now, coming back after a couple weeks, I'm seriously impressed and feel like it's a totally different whisky! Sweet, honey, fruity, oaky, with just a hint of spice on the finish. A tasty 43% whisky... can't get much better for the price!

    Bougt for price as a trial. It is smooth and uneventful, as in nothing objectionable. The Bushmills SM 10 yr has much more flavor, but I would purchase the Speyburn over the Glenmorangie 10 yr. at a significant saving, and lose not much, I think.

    I tried this single malt for the first time a couple of weeks ago as I usually purchase the highlands. I was very expressed, so smooth and very drinkable, my 10 year old stated 46 percent ABV. The price is very reasonable, you can''t go wrong with this one. Salt Lake City, Utah USA
