(94 = Superstar whiskies that give us all a reason to live.) nose 23.5 how evocative! A stroll through bluebell woods; slightly earthy without the smoke and floral without the pungency. Fresh and allows the barley to display a wonderful citrus edge; taste 24 mouth-watering elivery with the malt growing in intensity by the second… amazing! finish 23 slackens in pace as the vanillas move in; balance 23.5 Rarely have I found a Glen Spey so self-asured and intense. Bravo! (Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2013)

Glen Spey distillery
Glen Spey trône au beau milieu de la rue principale de la ville de Rothes. C’est la plus connue des cinq distilleries que l’on trouve en ce lieu.
L’ensemble de la production de Glen Spey disparaît dans des assemblages.
Glen Spey dispose d’une cuve de brassage (mash tun) d’une capacité de 2 tonnes en acier inoxydable et de huit cuves de fermentation (wash backs) d’une capacité de 25 000 litres chacune. La distillation s’effectue dans deux wash stills (d’une capacité de 12 000 litres chacun) et deux spirit stills (d’une capacité de 7 500 litres chacun).
Les seules bouteilles de single malt Glen Spey qui se trouvent (rarement) sur le marché sont dues à des embouteilleurs indépendants, ou alors dans des collections spéciales.

Speyside
The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
