BERRY'S Speyside Reserve 46%
Blended Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 15690
The challenge taken up by Doug McIvor, Berry Bros & Rudd’s ‘nose’, was to blend several Speyside single malts to create a Reserve with plenty of character. And he has been very successful in this undertaking: the River Spey sparkles in the sunshine.

- Appearance : golden yellow.
- Nose : generous, full-bodied. Oscillates between candied fruit, honey and vervain. It then develops notes of malted barley, underscored by vanilla and spices (ginger and pepper).
- Palate : round, silky. Ripe fruit (pears, apples) and white flowers (lilac, lily of the valley) form an inspired, dynamic ensemble. Mild spices (cardamom, coriander) emerge on the mid-palate.
- Overall : long, soft. Softens with malted barley and milk caramel. Vanilla and citrus fruit zest mingle harmoniously. The retro-olfaction is smooth and generous.
- The brand
Created in 1698, Berry Bros. & Rudd is one of the oldest wine and spirits merchants in the United Kingdom. Official suppliers to the British crown since the 18th century, the Berry and Rudd family is best known for offering a range of original and innovative products. The London shop located at 3 St James Street is a testament to the history of their knowledge and expertise and known for being home to experts with extremely high standards. In its role as a spirits bottler, Berry Bros. & Rudd selects and bottles high-quality whiskies and rums under the names “Berrys’ Own Selection, “BBR Retro” and “Exceptional Casks”.
Berry Bros & Rudd have been selecting and bottling high quality whiskies and rums under the ‘Berry’s Own Selection’ label for more than 200 years. Doug McIvor, their in-house expert, has a strict philosophy when it comes to selecting the casks – they have to be mature, perfectly balanced and present a rare aromatic complexity. Occasionally, the selected barrel differs from the usual style of the distillery that has produced it, but that is of little concern to Doug, so long as the whisky complies with his rigorous criteria.
