Whisky reviews for Braeval 1997 JW

  1. notesofmalt scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Braeval 1997 - 2020, 23 years, 51% alc. Bottler: Jack Wiebers Whisky World (Old Train Line). Ageing: Bourbon cask #21562

    Nose: Very interwoven, the nose needs time and the glass a little hand warmth. I find honeydew melon and peach, I even mean iced tea. There are also pastries, including oatmeal and butter cake, and I smell canned pears. The impression is complemented by a distant campfire with soaked wood, but the smoke is only nuanced.

    Palate: Starts quite fruity with peaches, blackberries and a little unripe strawberries. Add to that the distant smoke of the nose, milk chocolate and caramel. The intensity then increases, the Braeval appears stronger and is complemented with significantly more spice, black pepper, a hint of ginger and a pinch of cinnamon.

    Finish: Medium length, creamy sweet, uncomplicated. The fruit flavors linger along with the cinnamon and a little caramel.

    Conclusion: It needs a lot of time on the nose, then aromatically complex on the palate, the finish can't quite keep up. With a little attention, the Braeval can be great fun, but it's also easy to drink. 87/100 points (2022)
