McClelland's

I presume the Lowland is Auchentoshan, Islay is Bowmore but who is the producer of the Speyside I've heard it's Glenfarclas?

I would imagine Glen Garioch, not a Speyside more of an East Highland, but Morrison-Bowmore who own the McLellands brand also own GG.

WB - sorry, just checked their site:

Didn't realise they also have a Highland, which will probably be Glen Garioch.

Speyside notes as follows:

Could well be a young Glenfarclas. Have you tried it?

BTW - welcome to the forums.

Quite often these own label and supermarket malts are a complete mystery.

Thanks for the info but the Highland is definitely not Glen Garioch (at the moment), the speyside is the nicest then the lowland the young Islay is like drinking harpic, but then I've never drank a young Islay and liked it you might as well smoke a lump of peat then wash your mouth out with meths.

cheers for the reply :thumbsup:
