I have to almost ask the question here: can you afford NOT to buy the Glen Spey? When's the last time you saw cask strength, single barrel, Highland single malt whisky for under seventy bucks? Much like we've become the kings of off-vintage Bordeaux value here at K&L, I feel like we're beginning to become the kings of non-branded Scottish distilleries. Glen Spey is another Johnnie Walker distillery that provides the backbone to J&B, but here in this single cask edition it's pure fruit flavor and lithe vanilla core are allowed a solo number. There's nothing out of the ordinary here. It's just classic Scotch flavor for a damn good price. At cask strength, no less.
