Our first new release from Watt Whisky comes courtesy of a 13 year old from Glen Spey that has spent nearly all its life inside a single ex-bourbon hogshead, before a brief 3 month rerack into an ex-sherry cask. You’ll find bottles available at The Whisky Exchange for £65.95.

Remaining in Speyside for a Glen Spey that was filled into a 1st fill ex-bourbon barrel in 2012. It’s the lynchpin of this outturn's triptych of offers.

Opening our March account with a 9 year old Glen Spey matured in a 1st fill ex-bourbon barrel. It has been a few years since SMWS visited this Rothes based distillery – and despite it being in the heart of a famous whisky producing town, Glen Spey arguably receives the least attention of the four distilleries based in Rothes. Perhaps the single Flora & Fauna 12 year old is the reason that this distillery remains largely under the radar and firmly in the lap of blenders?

Only the 12 bottling from this distillery – and drawn from a refill ex-bourbon hogshead.

Sticking to the Speyside region and moving to Rothes we’re presenting with a 12 year old from Glen Spey distillery. Not all that commonly bottled outside of its Flora & Fauna release – but we’ve seen a smattering of casks from the Society over the last couple of years.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company

Today we move just half a mile down east from the focus of yesterday’s review – Glenrothes – to a distillery founded in the very same year of 1878 - Glen Spey. Diageo’s J&B filler malt was infrequently bottled in single malt form before 2012. And indeed, when it comes to OB’s - barring a reasonably regular 12 year old Flora & Fauna release along with one Special Release back in 2010, two Manager’s Choice’s (2008 + 2009) and a lonesome 25 year old Casks of Distinction - that’s your lot. But over the last eight years, Glen Spey, whilst hardly a darling of independent bottling has seen over 160 releases from a wide range of global bottlers.
