Whisky Reviews for Braeval 1994 TWA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

    Really nice. Huge amounts of deep flavor; a significant oak influence with vanilla, sweet caramel, lemon, honey, and heather. A touch of bubble gum. A perfect strength as-is for sipping. Reminds me of the Benrinnes/Stronachie 18.

    Overall, a great example of a high-quality ex-bourbon whisky bottled at its prime. Goes to show that a seriously tasty whisky doesn't need to be drowned in sherry. A strongly recommended buy at list price. 

    90/100.

    Braeval 18 yo 1994 (49,7%, Liquid Library 2013, ex-bourbon barrel)Nose: very very fruity. Bright lime and orange, lemon curd, lots of banana and marshmallow. Peach yoghurt and kiwi. Assorted fruit gums. Also a green oakiness. Vanilla custard and honey. Bring on the summer, baby. Mouth: again so fresh and fruity, with a nice balance of sweetness and sourness. Orange, green apple peelings, tangerine and lime. Marzipan cookies. Grassier and oakier than the nose. Some pepper. Finish: not exactly dry but the oak has a firm grip now. Cooked fruit and pepper.

    Good summery whisky, and this expression is particularly bright and vibrant. Around € 90. By the way, there’s a similar version in the Liquid Treasures series. Just as good.

    Score: 88/100
