McClelland's Speyside

Ryan: Unrefined Speyside for $32, is surprisingly enjoyable and economical scotch with a buttery caramel aroma with fresh fruit notes. Sweet and strong, ad nutty on the pallet, finishing abruptly.

Robin: Aggressively boozy and for those without a nose. Not to be purchased.

Sean: An excellent table scotch at an affordable price. Smooth and somewhat lacking in its flavor profile, with enjoyable sea-spray and sustained heat on the finish. Suitable for pairing with sweet deserts. Good for beginners.

Matt: Great value as a table whisky. Pronounced smoke, hints of salt, but a clearly under developed malt. Fires up the blood as it should.

Daniel: I honestly didn't even drink this one and am better for it.  Fight club started in Tyler's basement. It has since moved out and is now called Project Mayhem. 

Scott: Burnt embers, sweet and sour.  The finish leaves something to be desired. Still beats the pants off a decent blend.

    This looks amazing, something my husband would love. His birth is coming up soon as well.

    Hi Sherry, I think you might be outta luck on this one. Only 9000 bottles of this delicious whisky were produced and I'd wager most - if not all - purveyors have been sold out for quite some time now. If you're looking to sample it, I'd recommend visiting your local whisky bar and checking their list of Canadian whisky offerings. Your only other option would be to try and track down someone willing to give up their bottle? I've got one 2oz sample tucked away and, sorry, I'm keeping it all to myself! :) Good luck! Let us know if you find a bottle!

    Do you know where I can purchase this item?
