  • Don’t Judge a Single Malt by its Price!

    Mar 23, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, malty but light and fruity taste
    Cons: Not as robust as some others

    Summary: A $20 Single Malt that tastes good? More seasoned gents had told me, “Young man, that is not possible!” But while anyone can find a good cigar for $25, finding a drinkable single malt for $20 takes some doing. Glass In Hand Day is done, ... read more

  • 'Like candy in a bottle'

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive (~20-25). Good flavor. Not too overpowering.
    Cons: Finish is short. Very sweet.

    Summary: I recently began an interest in drinking Scotch whisky. Being a graduate student funds can be limited at times. When looking around the internet it was brought to my attention that it is possible to acquire a decent bottle of scotch for under $30. These ... read more

  • A good value in a single malt, lacks a little complexity.

    Aug 2, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Value, smoothness, interesting mineral and fruit overtones.
    Cons: Thin, lacks complexity found in higher in single-malts.

    Summary: When it comes to Scotch, I generally look in two directions. Either I buy a bottle of whatever decent blend is on sale for the sake of making Scotch and Coke, or I buy Glenlivet 12 year old for sipping neat. But I saw this single malt on sale, so I ... read more

  • Took a chance on a 1.75 L Bottle

    Aug 4, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth, nice flavor, not too expensive
    Cons: Not in a fancy package, although it does have a real cork.

    Summary: My Scotch of choice is Pinch. I needed to bring home a good bottle of scotch for my Father-in-law, who normally drinks fairly cheap scotch at his own house. I ask the Liquor Store Manager (adjoining Costco in San Antonio) if he had any good Scotch that ... read more

  • Christmas Spirits, Pt Trey: Speyside Stocking-Stuffer

    Dec 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clean and subtle Speyside classic; a nice stocking stuffer, albeit no Great Revelation
    Cons: A bit too moderate for me, and a slightly abbreviated finish

    Summary: Ah ... Yuletide. Here we are in the last of Advent, with Christmas Day and Boxing Day and Twelve Nights from the Feast of the Nativity until Epiphany's showing-forth of the Good News to all peoples: a time of year to huddle beside the hearth and ... read more

  • Acquire it

    Dec 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: An excellent single malt for the price
    Cons: Not for the undiscerning

    Summary: Single malt Scotch is definitely an acquired taste. This is not a drink for those who dabble, or who drink merely because there is alcohol in the brew. This is a drink for the discerning. Speyburn is a good introduction to single malt for those ... read more

  • One smooth single malt that tastes much more expensive than it is.

    Not rated yet
    Pros: Great honey overtones . Not over complex, easy drinker with a splash of water.
    Cons: Despite having a good balance of primary flavors could be a tad stronger.

    Summary: I have been a Scotch drinker for about 10 years now, I have tried many varieties including other single malts and agree that the strong, smoky and peat tastes of other high dollar singles turned me off. Speyburn attracted me by the package and I thought ... read more

  • Great value single malt

    Rated Show
    Pros: Price, medium flavor profile.
    Cons: A bit young and raw tasting.

    Summary: A good middle-of-the-road single malt scotch. Much better than blended scotch and a great value at the $20 it cost me. I went back the next week and bought another bottle. It certainly won't measure up to the great single malt whiskies but it is quite ... read more

  • Regretted this purchase

    Rated Show
    Pros: Cheap single-malt
    Cons: Aroma, flavor, inferior to scotches of same price, whether blended or single-malt

    Summary: I picked this up because it was a cheaper single-malt, but I regretted every penny of it. The aroma and taste were both disagreeable. But, my taste leans toward Islay malts. I am not a huge fan of Speyside. I am not impressed by Glenfiddich, but I ... read more

  • Speyburn found at Safeway in SF

    Pros: Very good! Low Peat taste, not smokey, mellow and smooth.
    Cons: Hard to find.

    Summary: I happened upon a bottle and it was on sale. I purchased it because my boyfriend is a lover of whiskeys, scotch and bourbon and has introduced me to many as well. Neither of us had seen this whiskey before. The bottle was in an attractive case and boy ... read more

  • Very Good for the Price

    Pros: Very good introductory single malt, smooth and light, straight forward malt.
    Cons: no real depth of flavor, straight malt and pretty pungent initial taste.

    Summary: So I'm a scotch snob, ok I admit it. I drink mostly single malts and have a preference for the Islay malts particularly Lagavulin. So when I received a bottle of Speyburn as a gift I was not impressed. Even less so when I saw the price in a local ... read more
