Whisky Reviews for Braeval 1989 ElD
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.75 points
- Pretty old Braeval.
Reminds a little of a Mortlach from the Bourbon Cask.
Light meat notes, combined with coastal flavors, gout, salt, maybe even a very minimal light smoke,
Little fruit, towards sparkling Schweppes lemonade, citrus fruits, noticeably malt and vanilla,
For the finish, very clear oak wood spice and vanilla from the Bourbon Cask.
Highly recommended, also because it is very rare as such an old single malt.
N: A strong, salty/coastal & yeasty number with malty lemonade and a light meaty touch.
T: Prickly at first before turning to carbolic silky barley and more of that light meatiness.
F: Vanilla oaky tannins.
C: In an age of efficiency & consistency, there is now rarely a duffer, yet seldom a cracker. This is one of many, very fair, middling expressions.
Scores a B-
