Nose: Breakfast cereals, oats and fresh golden barley sit with custard cream biscuits. Freshly cut grass, reed and flax is joined by hay. Dilution adds a citric zing alongside gingerbread and sponge cake.

Taste: Fresh, perky and easy-going in nature – malt loaf and bowl of oats are joined by buttery biscuit (base), crackers and dry oakiness whilst peppery spices emerge and become quite piquant. Reduction adds preserved lemons and ginger alongside dry oakiness – garden decking.

Finish: Medium with shaved chocolate, honeycomb, lingering pepper and dry oakiness.

Straight-forward down the line Glen Spey which focusses on the cereal character of the distillate. A touch too cask-led and spicy for my liking, but nevertheless enjoyable enough. Simple things.

Score: 82/100
