3 thoughts on “The Whisky Reviews ‘Hit List’

  1. Hi Neill, whilst reading and enjoying your review on Glenfarclas 105, I promptly purchased a bottle for £52. However, I was confused that the label stated ” Highland” single malt. Like yourself, I see it as a “Speyside ” If you have a spare moment, could you please enlighten me….. Oh and it’s a magnificent dram, just a you described it. Yours Ian.

    1. Hi Ian, thanks for getting in touch. I’m delighted you’re enjoying the dram.

      Glenfarclas is very much a Speyside distillery, it stands near to the village of Aberlour – which is considered by many to be the heart of Speyside.

      Having said that, Speyside is IN the Highlands, so they’re kind of entitled to call it that if they choose. It’s sort of a region within a region.

      My guess is it’s a throwback to the days before the Speyside ‘region’ was properly defined.

      Anyway, hope that helps.

      Cheers,

      Neill
