Whisky Review: McClelland’s Speyside Single Malt

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 12, 2010

Today I am returning to my review series on McClelland’s Single Malt Whiskies.  This week I am tackling the McClelland’s Speyside Single malt.

The Brand is owned by Morrison Bowmore Distillers and this whisky in their McClelland’s  line up is distilled in the region for which it is named, Speyside.

I found the McClelland’s Single Malt Speyside to be an accurate expression of a typical Speyside whisky.  It has a typical Speyside character with a spicy yet floral palate very typical of Speyside whiskies I have tried in the past.

Here is an excerpt from the review:

“The whisky is somewhat of a medium orange/gold colour in the glass.   When I swirl the glass I notice only a light oil and very skinny legs on the sides of the glass.  I receive distinct floral notes combined with honey and oak spices.  A vague anise licorice and a hint of cocoa lie behind the floral tone, and if the glass is left to sit, the aroma of oak tannin becomes stronger in the glass…”
