Whisky Reviews for Braes of Glenlivet 1994 DR

- Not a bad drink at all.
Tears coming down slow in the glass. Cream and a nice vanilla sweetness, buttercake allover.
Spicy start, sweet caramel, good medium body, woodtaste coming up together with a handfull of nuts.
Long spicy finish, warming and the nutty wood stays the longest.
- After a pretty sweet nose, the emphasis in the taste is more on tart and astringent tones. Leaves a good impression.
First, a bourbon nose like from a picture book, buttery, dense, vanilla and some coconut. After a while, it will be slightly salty, but will remain dense. Lots of malt now, a few scattered apples and peaches, a little zest. Over time, slightly fermented notes develop, some sweat and sour milk. When heated again more fruit, completely warmed up there is something new, now dominating everything else: Buttery, slightly burnt caramel, or cotton candy.
Very strong onset with slight alcohol binding weaknesses, dark malty honey and caramel notes, slightly astringent and comes out back oak.
He goes mid-paced with an emphasis on tannins and light acid, leaving a nutty feeling at the end.
- Bottler`s Notes:
Colour : Bright yellow.
Nose : Orange and dark chocolate, creamy notes.
Palate : Creamy shortbread, peaches, sweet marzipan on the finish.
Conclusion : A delightful cask from the Glenlivet valley.
