There were just too many options at the London Whisky Show! It is simply impossible to get to everything. Towards the end of the day, we passed by the Berry Bros & Rudd, and thought… let’s try just one!
By that point in our wanderings, I thought of trying something classic and uncomplicated. So decided to sample the Classic Speyside blend.
Berry Bros & Rudd Speyside Blended Malt 44.2%
- Nose – Honey, citrus, fresh fruits
- Palate – Juicy fruits
- Finish – Lightly sweet
Though I had only a light sniff, swish & spit, it left a nice impression – something easy and fruity. And there are times when that hits the spot.
What more do they have to say?
Many of Scotland’s most famous malts hail from Speyside, known for their approachable, fruity style and floral complexity. Our Classic Speyside Malt captures the very essence of the region, balancing subtle, honeyed fruit aromas with easy-going yet complex aromas.
- Appearance: Golden Syrup
- Bouquet: Honeyed fruit, citrus and soft wood
- Palate: Creamy citrus, honey, rounded
- Finish: Soft fruits, mid-long
I glanced at the Sherry however as everything was beginning to close up, decided to skip! However next festival should spend a bit of time with these folks.
For whatever reason, we haven’t tried many of their own whisky selections… just a few:
- Berrys’ Girvan 8 year (2006/2014) Cask 532398 46%
- Berrys’ Islay Reserve 46%
- Berrys’ Speyside Reserve 46%
