I hope everyone has enjoyed their first month of this new year.
This month’s scotch selection I’ve tasted for the first time this past year. Distilled at Speyburn Distillery, sitting majestically in a corner of the Spey valley at the foot of the densely wooded hills on the outskirts of the quiet Highland town of Rothes, is Speyburn 10 Year Old.
