Glen Spey 2001-2019 | 17 Year Old | Connoisseurs Choice Cask Strength
Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Gordon & MacPhail 70cl / 54.7%
You don't see many Glen Spey's bottled as a single malt but this sherried Speyside bottling is sure to make you think over and over again when tasting it. A great dram...
Batch 19/065 is a 2001 Glen Spey bottled in 2019 by G&M for their new and improved Connoisseur's Choice range. G&M have also spiced things up and bottled this one at a natural strength instead of the usual 46%. It was matured for 17 years in a refill sherry hogshead that yielded just 235 bottles.
The Connoisseurs Choice series is an iconic series that started in 1968. To date, around 100 distilleries have been featured as part of the range, with over 2,000 individual bottlings. Each label on each bottle states all the information about the whisky inside such as cask type, strength, region, vintage and tasting notes.
Nose: Subtle sweet fruit, milk chocolate and underlying sweet spice aromas.
Palate: Creamy, with a scattering of white pepper, pressed green apple and delicate floral influences.
Finish: Crushed almond and oak.
