In 1815, when Lord Byron married Annabella Milbanke at Seaham Hall, he gave a cask of 'Spey' whisky to King George III as a gift. The royal connection to Spey whisky has continued in other ways, including this single malt from the Speyside Distillery - the Spey Royal Choice. It was produced exclusively under licence for the charity Historic Royal Palaces, and features an image of the Tower of London on the label, as well as some classic Royal Blue. This deluxe single malt is presented in a handsome presentation box.
Deep rich amber gold in colour. Aromas of toffee, dried fruits and oak leading on to a smooth creamy texture. Flavours of butterscotch, warm spices and more oak yield to a long silky smooth finish which lingers on and on. A luscious smooth and regal whisky, the Jewel in the Crown.
ABV = 46.0%.
