Whisky Reviews for Braeval 1991 Brd
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.56 points
- Not bad, with severe bitterness; long and rich bitterness aftertaste.
- This is the first bottling for a new Belgian independent bottler – Brachadair.
Vanilla, white chocolate mousse, white pepper, honey in the nose.
The vanilla and spices explodes in your mouth with some waxy fruity notes.
Quite strong … I does open up nicely with some water.
Hint of smoke in the finish with some creamy coconut.
An nice example of a ‘modern’ bourbon matured Speyside whisky
Good value for this price!
- Well, Brachadair certainly knows how to make an entry,
if you ask me. And only 79 EUR, which is hard to beat.
The nose is very sweet, but mostly very waxy. Beeswax,
dried grass, coconut milk, ginger and white pepper. Some citrus in the shape of
lime, peel included. A little bitterness, a touch of sourness. Hints of oak and
some vanilla that becomes louder all the time. Very accessible.
On the palate, it is waxy as well, but immediately
turns very feisty. Black peppers, ginger, even some nutmeg. The fruit then
takes the reins again. White fruit, yellow fruit, both juicy and dried.
Coconut, again. I quite like this.
On the long, spicy finish, I get some woodsmoke.
