Whisky Reviews for Braeval 1998 ShC

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.63 points

  1. Mr.Edradour scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Blind-tasting notes: al lot of alcohol, but also vanilla, sweetness and fruity flavors. Alcoholic strength way above 50%, about 10yo, red wine cask finish.

    Not too bad, well balanced single malt scotch.

    Blind tasting: Nice smell, slightly boring taste with alcoholic notes. Long, warm and spicy finish. Very nice bottling. Touch Highlands, ~ 50% Alcohol, Port Finish.
    • Nose
      Tasty and fresh, smells of honey, floral notes, a mix of dark and light fruits - like skittles. After a while getting spicier, little oak and no disturbing alcohol.
    • Taste
      Only tingling and with a lot of force on the tongue, now the alcohol is fully there. Oily and heavy, I had judged differently from the nose. Still pretty (dark) fruity and spicy, more reminiscent of sherry
    • Finish
      First Buttrig, becoming ever spicier, goes slightly into the bitter. Long and warm, tannins and dark fruits swing after.
