    • Nose
      Honey with sour notes, citrus fruits, apples, grassy, floral, spices, malt, marzipan, chocolate and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Somewhat sour, slightly bitter, oranges, some malty notes, little pepper, nutty. It reminds me of gin.
    • Finish
      Citrus fruit, lemons, soury with vreamy notes, chocolate, short to medium length.

  2. Mr.Edradour scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A little bit more alcoholic strength (e.g. 46%) would make this whisky much better!

    This 12 yo Braeval from 2001 is a double cask release. Two sherry butts were used and was bottled in 2013.

    Nose: lots of citrus and light sweet with tones of chocolate and mocca

    Taste: full, herbs with tones of orange and even more chocolate

    Finish: long, dry and with aroma's of lime seeds.

    All in all a lovely whisky for a low price. Can't understand the low ratings from others. A pity this distillery has been closed in 2008. Will be missed when I finish my second bottle.
