The introduction of these seven new captivating Single Cask releases is a tribute to the exceptional skill and uncompromising dedication that is behind Secret Speyside. Over decades of maturation, an incredibly distinctive range of flavours have developed inside each cask and these stunning new releases, bottled at cask strength, represent an impressive depth to Speyside that is just waiting to be discovered.”
