Glen Spey 26 yo 1988/2014

Glen Spey 26 yo 1988/2014

35, Maltbarn
Single malt - Speyside
Dark gold
43.5% ABV

Nose: Raspberries, cream, cola nuts, brass polish, hints of sarsaparilla. 
Mouthfeel: Medium body, thickens, slippery, slightly chewy. 
Tasting:  Sweet sour. Cola nuts, vanilla, brass polish, orange peel, honey, hints of chocolate. 
Finish: Medium. Cream, honey, chocolate, hints of raspberries. 


Mild and gentle, slightly metallic (that's the brass polish) with some good fruitiness. It doesn't really perk up much till the finish, where there's waves of cream and honey and chocolate. I couldn't quite get into this, it's good whisky but maybe slightly tired.


Not bad.
