Although this distillery is operating, it remains one of the hardest Speyside whiskies to find.

Other reviews... The kind of firm, busy malt you expect from this distillery, plus some lovely spice.... Great to see it back to its more natural, stunningly beautiful self.

The Glen Spey distillery would have continued to slip under the radar of single malt chasers, had it not been for a few favorable releases. Formerly known as the "Mill of Rothes", it was built in 1878 by James Stuart & Co (who later went on to buy the Macallan distillery) as an addition to its cereal business. The rarity of Glen Spey as Single Malt bottling is largely due to its use as an essential component of J&B's blends, however Diageo has produced this rare Flora and Fauna bottling. Bottled as a 12 year old and 43% ABV, the particularity of this Scotch resides in its production method, with Pot Stills equiped with "purifiers", redirecting some vapour to reflux within the still to produce a less feinty and lighter spirit.
