Speyburn 10 year old single malt is matured in a combination of American Oak ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks.
The nose is quite citrusy and zesty. Sugared orange peels and herbal notes, wood shavings and pine oil, rubbed spearmint leaves and winter spice. There are notes of malted barley and cereal sweetness. The palate is of medium-bodied and quite smooth. There are well-balanced notes of cereal sweetness and arak, malt extract and anise with hints of something herbaceous and a touch of smoke. The finish is quite long with lots of barley.
