Whisky Reviews for Braeval 1997 DL

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points

  1. LDB scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A kind of mix of Glenrothes, Springbank and truffle pig.
    The aromas are initially heavy, but in the field of tolerable. He wins a lot with water. He could split - he does not do it. He fits in any case very well for the fall!

      Rubber & sulfur, loamy soil, mushrooms in the forest, oh yes, quite strong. Lightly fermented apricots with some water, polished brass, aperol.
    • Taste
      87 87
      A spicy wild boar forest soil flavor with sweet chestnuts, then oily waxy with the gunpowder of the nose. Overall, lighter with water, swims well.

      It remains peculiar, relatively little fruit, many autumnal notes, fortunately not too dry, but nice juicy to Nachmauen.

    N- Also known as Braes of Glenlivet, rarely seen as a single malt that shares the honour of being the joint highest distillery in Scotland with Dalwhinnie. Juicy fresh pickled nutmeg that stimulate salivary glands. Eucalyptus, light cough liquorice and spices in harmony and interchanging. Oak comes in sweet with dried fruits of raisins. Bright with firmness that goes well with subtle earth fauna aroma of ginger flower. (87/21)

    P- Mouthwatering spicy pickled fruits, layered with chocolate, maltose, toasted nuts, honey and nectarine syrup. Delightfully balance with good mouth coat. (89/22)

    F- Medium long, weighty with waxy element to it, open box of crayons, minty and echoing ginger warmness at the back palate. (89/22)

    B/B- 90/22 well structure dram with good weight.

    Weighted Rate- 87pt

    Cr-2, Fr-3, Fl-2, Pt-0, Ft-2, Sp-1, Wd-3, Wn-1, Sc-3
