4 users have left 5 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 85.50 points.

  1. Jevan scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    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.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      medium long with cinnamon and white pepper.

    comic book style label

    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.
