Glen Spey-Glenlivet 16yo 54%

Single Malt Whisky From the Speyside Region

A vatting of just three Hogsheads of 16yo Glen Spey as part of the Small Batch range – for Cadenheads 858 bottles from a release is actually quite a big batch! Just as well as this is an excellent example of Glen Spey.

Juicy green apples, freshly cut grass, slight hint of cayenne pepper in the background


Grapefruit, coconut, marzipan


Butter popcorn, sweet chilli sauce, stewed apples


Nose – clean and hard, smells like the clean side of a gym (generic gym soaps, deodorant and hot sauna). Quite closed though, creams rather than fruits. That hot wood thing is compelling.

Body – Big and rich compared to the nose, a little red chilli and burnt sugar, a lot more fruit (roasted pineapple slices).

Finish – Medium to long with charred apple crumble and a little ash.

A quite classy and old school nose and good richness and interest in the delivery but isn’t that well integrated.

Score A+

82 /100

This one from three hoggies. Could be ideal, let’s see… Colour: straw. Nose: this one’s less malty, and more on skins, herbs, leaves, and oils. This is actually a large hessian bag full of various kinds of apples, some from two years ago. With water: same plus a touch of menthol and eucalyptus. Mouth (neat): pure clean obvious malty. In that sense closer to the very good G&M. More stout, mead, ale, burnt cakes, green tobacco, apple skins, breads… With water: yep, gets a tad sappy, almondy… Finish: pretty long, rather on marzipan this time. And beer. Comments: the kind of totally honest malt whisky that could sing ‘I am what I am’. No one’s ever tried to put makeup on it. Very good. - Serge
