SPEY Tenné single malt Scotch whisky from the Speyside Distillery Company. Bourbon cask matured follwed by double maturation Tawny Port casks from the Quinto do Filoco winery.
The clean fresh fruit aroma of apples, pears and a trace of overripe bananas laced with milk chocolate and vanilla suggests a sweet taste and indeed this port wood finish from rich tawny port wood casks does not disappoint, An excellent choice as a pre-dinner aperitif it is very sweet to the taste and leads to a medium finish that does not overstay its welcome.
