Whisky Reviews for Braeval 1998 vW

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.21 points

  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Mild fruitiness. hint of orangepeel, Wood and some vanilla. Heater but not much. Apple juice. quite a classic speyside

    Initial taste: sweet and sour, hint of spice. some duff note, like a dusty old cellar. Citrus in  here confectionery citrus. Malt. Pine seed.

    Body: medium, not much of it actually.

    Finish: medium. The taste notes are there and slowly fade away.

    Price: This is a rarely seen whisky as everything is for the blends, that makes the price higher, but the quality isn't that good.

    Presentation: Sober but decent as always with The Ultimate

    Comments: sample from Hvdree.

    Blind tasting of a sample.
    • Nose
      Apple juice, lime (7Up), caramel, sour citrus candy, fig, banana and just a little grass.
    • Taste
      Caramel, lime, pepper, apple, fig. A little washing-up liquid?

  5. whiskytheo did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    If you like Speyside whisky, this is definitely worth a try. You can also have a pick-up at a festival there you can taste the Braeval, you will not be disappointed.
    • Nose
      barley, sweet, lemon, vanilla, nuts
    • Taste
      creamy, oily, barley, some plum (the yellow ones), vanilla fudge, honey and white pepper in the end.
    • Finish
      pleasant, supple, sweet, the pepper note stops, mint and a slight bitter end.
