Whisky Reviews for Braes of Glenlivet Batch 1 TBWC

- A drinkable but unremarkable dram. The oily mouthfeel and body makes it more worthwhile that many bourbon casks but it turn it did not have the pleasant fruitiness of many bourbon cask Speysiders. 84.
Light, sweetish nose with vanilla and a touch of honey. Vanilla based pudding like tapioca. Custard cream biscuits. Light balsa wood in the background. Talcum powder or light soap. Very little change with water except for a light green fruit like gooseberries or unripe pears develops.
Malty and oily taste that coats the inside of your mouth in a rewarding way. Waxy Apples. Touch of spice mainly cinnamon and white pepper. With water some talcum powder appears.
medium long with cinnamon and white pepper.

Tom and Justin. driving up to visit Scotlands many whisky distilleries in a car
laden with Evian (Justins very lifeblood). The inspiration for the label was
the fact that it was Braes o Glenlivet that drew the trio into the wonderful
world of whisky in the first place.
