Classic Speyside aromas of spicy candied orange peel, burnt earth and garrigue are offset by a honeyed smokiness. The palate shows wonderful flavors of vanilla and walnut butting heads with hints of cured ham. On the finish it is smooth, generous and well structured.

The Speyburn-Glenlivet Distillery was founded in 1897 by John Hopkins & Company for the sum of £17,000. The site was chosen by John Hopkins himself for its unpolluted water supply from the Granty Burn, one of the major tributaries to the River Spey. Hopkins appointed the famous distillery architect Charles C Doig to design the distillery and to this day Speyburn has its classic pagoda ventilator, a hallmark of Doig's design. Speyburn Single Highland Scotch Malt whisky is exported throughout the world and it is currently the number 9 best selling single malt whisky in the USA
