"Great value whisky [that] encapsulates Speyside's appealing regional character" - Whisky Advocate

A very pure and emphatically Speyside malt that oozes charm from the first sniff with floral-soft aromas of poached orchard fruits, light toasted marshmallow and even a touch of musk. Continues the theme flavour-wise, but with a slightly grassier/woody accent. Excellent concentration, spicing up towards the finish. Everything in its place. 44.2% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... This great value whisky encapsulates Speyside's appealing regional character with notes of green apple, airy florals, vanilla fudge, honey, pecan nut, toasted croissant, marzipan, and light dry spices. With its lovely structure and weight, this unwraps apple, golden syrup, tart citrus, banana, and caramel. A smart aperitif choice for a carefree day, this delivers a sweet, light, delicious dram with an active spicy finish.  88 points - whiskyadvocate.com

A lot of malt to get your teeth into. The oak isn't exactly sympathetic, but the big wave of vanilla at the midpoint carries some attractive maple syrup. 84 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2023

Another one that ‘captures the very essence of the region’. Oh the BS you have to come up with when you have no age statement, even when you’re a great old house such as BB&R! Colour: white wine. Nose: yep, naturally. Bread, sawdust, vanilla, barley, hand cream. What you can get out of some super-young malt whisky from Speyside and some good modern wood. We shall call it ‘gristy’. Mouth: of course it’s good, of course. Malt, vanilla, shortbread, stout, burnt caramel, apple pie, corn syrup. Really, it’s good, but a tad soulless. Some kind of ueber-blend, perhaps, fighting in the same category as that of Cardhu, Knockando, Glenlivet, Monkey Shoulder, and ‘stuff’. High volume, I hope! Finish: rather long, malty and caramelly. Ovaltine, come out of this whisky! Comments: yeah, sure! Made to perfection, but… bzz… 80 points - whiskyfun.com
